Welcome back! Sorry for the longer-than-usual wait. For what it’s worth, I like how this puzzle came out. I’ve been sitting on that clue/entry at B1 for a while now, so I’m glad to use it here.
For AP Meta Contest players: as the contest wrapped up Sunday, I’m happy to announce the winners here:
Grand Prize — Meg Duvall, St. Petersburg FL
First Prize — Jon Olsen, New Rochelle NY
First Prize — Jason Juang, Mountain View CA
First Prize — Jim Siirola, Salt Lake City UT
Congrats to the four lucky winners! Of 153 official entries, only 12 solvers were able to come up with the Final Answer, so it proved to be quite the challenge. For those who want to keep working towards the Final Answer, by all means send over your Final Answer and I’d be happy to verify it for you.
For those still interested in getting the contest puzzles, you can get the puzzles at the reduced rate of $8.99. There won’t be any prizes to speak of, but you can still have the fun at almost half the price. Buy it HERE.
Want more Puzzlefest action? Head on over to Neville Fogarty’s Kickstarter campaign for a board game-themed suite of puzzles. If the quality puzzles Neville offers for free on his website are any indication, this should be a very well-crafted set of puzzles. Highly recommended.
