Don’t mess around, solve the puzzle
This is the review for last week’s Chris Words puzzle, “THAT’S THE POWER OF LOVE“. I actually wrote the review last weekend, but held off on posting until now since it’s a meta. If all goes well, this should be showing up on Saturday, with another new puzzle out tomorrow. Anyway, spoilers below.
hi! i’m e.a., and welcome to the first installment of BRINGIN UP OLD STUFF, where we’ll be reviewing indie puzzles that dropped before there was a cool blog around to cover them – a sort of pre-NGOTBian puzzle project, if you will.
i felt like i hadn’t solved a neville fogarty puzzle in a while, so i hopped in my time machine, set the dial for three years, and landed right on a contest puzzle. it’s called “Costume Party,” and it’s a halloween-themed puzzle from october 26, 2012. you can and should solve it here.
i wanted to match the conversational style of blogging that’s done so well by ben/lena/michael on the daily posts here, so i called on a friend: today, i’ll be chatting with erik agard, an indie puzzler whose work can be found at glutton for pun dot blogspot dot com. an edited transcript of our conversation follows.
