When you think of crossword tournaments in New York City, well, you probably think of the big one. But you should also remember Lollapuzzoola, a light-hearted competition that will mark its sixth year on Saturday. This isn't your typical solving contest, largely because the puzzles contain more freeform creativity. There's a pizza party, too!
Puzzle Pile has an excellent interview with founder/organizer Brian Cimmet if you want to learn more. Though I won't be there because I suck, you should definitely attend if you can!
