Puzzle #86: Financial Planning (with Kate Chin Park)

 Hi friends,

Got a really special one this week with the inimitable Kate Chin Park. You can solve her amazing puzzles over at Crosswords Schmosswords and see her work as an editör at the New Yörker.

Thanks to Norah for helping test this one. I'm hopeful to keep this trend of weekly puzzles going, at least for a bit, this summer. If you're enjoying them, drop me a line! I'd love to hear from you.




Mmm, strawberry rhubarb bars

Puzzle #79: A PUZZLE FOR @TlMBERWOLVES by Paolo Pasco

 Hi friends, Super excited to bring you a guest puzzle this week from constructor extraordinaire Paolo Pasco . You can find his work in the New York Times, AVCX, cryptics at the New Yorker and the Browser, and generally you'll find him anywhere quality grids are found. This puzzle was made for me (!) as part of a "Secret Snowflake" (aka Secret Santa) exchange on the crossword Discord where a bunch of us made grids personalized for our giftees, and then gave them anonymously. Now that we've all been unmasked, Paolo graciously gave permission for me to run this puzzle here. It was truly one of my favorite puzzles of 2022, and I think you'll love it too. Paolo says: "HONORED TO BE ON THE BLOG, TO CELEBRATE ONE OF THE GREATS NO LESS—HOPE YOU ENJOY!"   .puz PDF   Solution   Mmm, apricot hamentaschen

Puzzle #74: Strings Attached (with Christopher Adams)

Hey friends,  Got a fun collab today with Chris Adams of arctan(x)words . Chris was instrumental in getting this theme set to fit into a grid. With unusual symmetry and some other trickery, we managed to pack a whole lot of theme into the puzzle, and I'm grateful for his efforts to make this one work. We're also grateful for the help from Norah and Brian in helping get this one in shape! Chris says "i'm very glad to have been able to help with this puzzle, i think it came out well, thank you to will for reining in my weirder tendencies, there's more coming from me very soon, etc. etc." and by etc. he means some very fun stuff indeed! .puz   PDF Solution Mmm, brownies with maple cream cheese frosting
