Something Extra at the Family Reunion - 7/29/14

Double Agent - 7/28/14

Today's classic California puzzle is one I came across on a list of favorites.  All I can say is that if you've gotten it done correctly there will be no doubt in your mind why that is.  Perfect combination of write-up, puzzle, and location.  If I told you any more, I'd feel like a:

Insomniac - 7/24/14

I expect we've all had them ... those nights when you lie awake just watching the clock change from one minute to the next, knowing that every minute you're awake means one less minute of sleep you're going to manage before you have to get up in the morning.  Today's New York puzzle will give you something to contemplate next time you find yourself as an:

Lord of the Flies - 7/19/14

Today's Pennsylvania puzzle is one of a group of literature based puzzles.  I can't say it was my favorite high school reading assignment, but I certainly do remember:

Zip, Zop, Zap, Zoup - 7/18/14

Usually the toughest puzzles of the week appear on Fridays, but since we had a tough one from Paris on Monday, I figured I'd follow up with another clever (but not as hard) puzzle by the same CO:

Bastille Day in Paris - 7/14/14

I had a note recently from a cacher suggesting today's Parisian puzzle as a unique one to share with you on Bastille Day.  I agreed that it was a fun challenge.  I wonder how long it will take you to:

Tri-State - 7/12/14

Today's Texas puzzle wasn't specifically inspired by one featured here, but is one of three that was published as a long-distance series by cachers who got to know each other through the blog.  It was a fun collaboration, and something that others might have fun trying:

Tomorrow we'll head to North Carolina.

Cryptic - 7/11/14

Today's New York puzzle is another one that I know was inspired by a puzzle featured here on the blog.  I haven't been able to make the find on the original one, or on this one I'm featuring today, but I was able to make the find on another one that I know was was inspired by today's puzzle.  I love the cascade effect of a fun puzzle.  Try your luck with:

Have a Ball! - 7/10/14

One of my favorite types of puzzles to solve involves cutting up paper and putting it back together in interesting ways (that's probably the quilter in me).  I have featured several here before, and created my own Have A Ball! (PIE 2.6)  a while back.  Today's Delaware puzzle reminds me of one of the first of this type that I featured here. Get out your scissors and have some fun with:

An Interesting Beginning - 7/9/14

Today's featured puzzle has a fun history that I'm surprised I haven't shared here before, and it fits in perfectly with my theme of "inspired puzzles" this week (ones that either were definitely inspired by puzzles featured here, or possibly could have been).  I know this one was inspired by a puzzle I featured here, because the CO of the original puzzle (which is actually overseas) made the find on today's New York City puzzle and discusses the connection in the log.  I'll probably never get to make the find on the original, but making the find on this one was a special treat, knowing of the connection:

It Begins At the Girls Gate

Tomorrow we'll be in Delaware.

Inspired - 7/7/14

I had considered starting to feature some reruns this week, as I haven't had too much puzzling time lately.  I hated to do that, though, so I decided to compromise by sharing some puzzles that either reminded me of some previous favorites or were inspired by a puzzle featured here.  I'll start things off with one of my own:

Artistry 101 - 7/6/14

When reading the description for today's Kentucky puzzle, I knew exactly what type of puzzle it was talking about, as I always skipped over them as a child.  My sister was the artist in the family, and I never felt like I had the skill necessary to get through:

Tomorrow we'll be in upstate NY.

On this holiday weekend you're probably doing other things than puzzling, but just in case you find yourself with some time on your hands, I have a series from California for you to ponder.  See how far you can get after you start your work here:

Chinese Food - 7/3/14

If you've been following the blog for long, you know that I often get inspired to find puzzles by looking at fortune cookies.  Since I often seem to have them around the house, you can tell that like the owner of today's Arkansas puzzle, I enjoy:
