I owe you, my loyal readers, a recap! I still have to do my big write-up of the Shinteki Decathlon. It's coming, but for now, let's run down a few shorter items.
June's Gryptics contest is posted! I found it smooth sailing, so why not do it yourself and try to win a book?
Over at Matt Gaffney's crossword contest, I was defeated last week after two consecutive perfect months, which is a pretty long streak for me. Despite my semi-routine humiliation, Matt's great work can't be denied. His tip jar is open until Friday, so if you enjoy these puzzles, do consider a donation.
This weekend, I participated in BANG 33 for the benefit of Elevate Tutoring. The puzzles were top-notch and made for a very enjoyable day in San Jose. The organizer, Bob Schaffer, is planning on running the game again this summer, so do take advantage of that if you're able.
On the train back from the BANG, I finished The Lost City, which I found courtesy of Clavis Cryptica. If you're looking for a light, compact adventure in the vein of Myst and its kin, definitely give this one a shot.
Have a good week, everyone. Get after it.
