Halloween 2014 - 10/31/14

Today's Pennsylvania puzzle is one I had fun solving and hunting for recently.  The presentation of the puzzle is a real work of art, and it must have taken a long time to create.  I wish you all a very Happy:

Tomorrow we'll be in California.

Two Bizarro - 10/30/14

Today's Australian puzzle landed in my in-box recently and I was tickled to realize it had been inspired by a puzzle the CO had seen here on the blog.  Making connections between puzzlers in this way is one of the main reasons I started it, and I love hearing from folks who let me know when they've been inspired.  Have some fun with:

Two Bizarro: High and Low

Tomorrow we'll celebrate Halloween in Pennsylvania.

Happy Mole Day! (Belated) - 10/25/14

I have presented several puzzles in honor of Groundhog Day, and when I heard that folks had been celebrating Mole Day earlier this week, I knew I'd have to rustle up a puzzle in honor of the occasion.  With this one from New Mexico, I wish everyone a happy (belated) Mole Day!:

Mole Hills out of Mountains

Tomorrow we'll kick off a week's worth of Halloween themed puzzles in Pennsylvania.

A Pair of Royals - 10/23/14

After yesterday's post featuring one of the teams in the World series, someone made the comment, "Hope you have a Royals puzzle."  So, in the interest of equal time I give you not one, but two Royals puzzles (neither one from Missouri, oddly enough):

From Nebraska:

Morse Code? - 10/22/14

So I was sitting down to watch a little of the Fall Classic last night (I admit I've been captivated by the Royals run, and have been happy to cheer for them since none of the teams I usually follow got this far), and stumbled across the new California puzzle I'm featuring today.  Who can resist a puzzle about:

Morse Code?

Tomorrow we'll be in California another day   in the midwest for a pair of puzzles representing the other side of the diamond.

Waiting for ... - 10/17/14

Puzzles can be a great way to pass the time when you have to sit around and wait.  I keep a book of them in the car, and have been known to print out geocaching puzzles to take to swim meets.  Today's Ohio puzzle is a good one to pass the time while:

Do the Math! - 10/10/14

Today's puzzle was recommended to me by a recent finder, captainmath (go figure!).  While I probably could have gotten through it without too much trouble 20 years ago, I admit I'm pretty rusty.  It's a good thing I had my husband around to:

Welcome to Poland - 10/8/14

I happened to notice the blog got some hits (intentional or not, I can't be sure) from Poland recently, so I thought it might be fun to make our first visit there for a puzzle.   I ended up choosing this one, which features a type of logic puzzle I don't think I'd encountered before:

Death Row - 10/1/14

Today's California puzzle was chosen in honor of its creator because I'm excited to be able to share with you that The Rat's new book becomes available for Kindle today. Congratulations, Russ! (Note: a paperback edition is also available ... I ordered one for myself but Santa is going to have to hide it really well if he expects me not to read it before Christmas.)  If you like, you can read more about Cliff Knowles' latest adventure here.   I have it on good authority that there is an explanation for one of the Rat's active puzzle caches in the book, but it's not the one I'm featuring today, which is:

A Polyomino Puzzle

Tomorrow we'll be in California another day, for a puzzle which dovetails nicely with this one.
