congratulations to austin burns of orlando, the winner of the meta contest from the ACPT puzzle! in a staggering coincidence, austin also won the meta contest for last year's ACPT puzzle. can he three-peat next year?!? full recap (including spoilers for the puzzle) after the jump.
ACPT starts today! i'm making this variety puzzle by andy kravis free to the public. it's challenging, but i believe in you. and it's a contest puzzle with a meta!
spoilers ahead for year 2 rows garden #25. spoilers!
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.
