Show Us What Ya Got

We're now taking submissions for the Indie 500 tournament! The 5 organizers (Andy, Erik, Evan, Neville, and myself) will each write a puzzle, but the sixth one will be by one of you. We're open to pretty much anything, but the only caveat is that you must be suitably indie. Our idea of indie is explained in more detail over at the tournament site. Hit up the SUBMIT page for all the info. And be sure to drop us a line on the CONTACT page if you haven't already; we'll add your name to the mailing list and keep you up to date.

Got another vowelless for you today. As always, two versions are available: one with answer lengths given and one without. And Y is not a part of any answer. Enjoy!

More words, crossed and otherwise, whenever I get around to it.

I collaborated with Erik Agard on his latest freestyle puzzle. Before you go thinking that I somehow acquired a sense of humour since we last spoke, I should tell you that EA wrote all of the clues. Dude is a cluing savant. In fact, he filled most of the grid, too, which was surely no mean feat. I'm struggling to remember what I actually did on this puzzle. I can't even take credit for title. Anyway, enjoy!

Writing to you from beautiful and scenic Denver, Colorado, and I'm about to head out to sample the local libations so I'll keep this brief. Been a while since I've had a puzzle for you, but I figured I should throw something up here since I mentioned the site (and my "voice" or whatever) in my constructor's notes for the Sat NYT. Bit saucier, this one; I'll understand if we can't be friends anymore.

More words, crossed and otherwise, sometime later on...
