i haven't posted here much during year 2 because the puzzles have been going out by email, but i wanted to bring your attention to an important project organized by francis heaney that i am proud to have contributed to. it's called puzzles for progress. check out the link.
the first variety puzzle of year 2 was sent out this morning, and the first rows garden will be sent out tomorrow morning. if you are a year 2 subscriber and didn't get it, try the following...
want to download all the year 1 rows gardens in one convenient bundle? i've got you covered.
a number of people have asked if i could make all of the year 1 puzzles available in easy-to-download form, for the convenience of those catching up. well, you asked and i am delivering.
with all 75 puzzles for year 1 now published, and the subscription drive for year 2 in full swing, i thought it would be useful to write up a short summary of everything that's happening here in the next week or two.
this is the last puzzle of year 1 here at outside the box puzzles, but it's also a first, in the sense that it's a puzzle type i made up. i brought it to a boston-area puzzlers picnic yesterday and it was well received.
congrats to matthew grieco of brooklyn, the winner of the meta contest! matthew has won a free premium subscription to year 2 of outside the box puzzles.
solutions (including spoilers for the puzzle, obviously) after the jump.
still working on yesterday's postponed variety puzzle, but here's the rows garden.
