Fee Fum Foe Phi -3/27/23

I've got a few things going on this week, so I'm letting my guest puzzle-picker Ol'Fogie take the reins for today's post. He writes:

Probably everyone reading this blog is somewhat a fan of Pi. I hide a cache every Pi Day in celebration and even have a couple of Pi shirts! BUT, most of us forget that other Greek symbols have their proper place in mathematics. Not just another pretty face, Phi is also irrational and has no repeating pattern of decimal digits. Which leads us to…

Snip! - 3/18/23

Today's Norwegian puzzle is one I featured 12 years ago today.  It inspired the creation of a similar puzzle in New York's Central Park which I was able to find myself years later.  But in a really cool twist, the CO of the original puzzle was actually able to find that one too.  It all started with:

Wine Talk Can Be Cryptic - 3/8/23

Today we travel a bit north of me into Canaday's Ontario province.  This puzzle reminded me of Cornell's wine-tasting class that used to be very popular.  I have no idea what happened to it during Covid, or if it has kept going the whole time.  I'm not much of a wine drinker myself, and I'm sure I would've learned a lot:

Super Bowl Monday - 2/13/23

The Super Bowl is behind us now.  Since our team got knocked out a while back, I was mostly an interested bystander.  I did go to the Super Bowl themed movie "80 for Brady" with my neighbor on Saturday.  We were the only 2 in the theater, which is a pretty good indication of why we're going to lose that movie theater soon.  Here's a puzzle from the UK featuring the man himself:

Oops - 2/4/23

Sorry for the late posting.  As I was lying in bed this wondering what made me agree to get up and go for a joint FTF later this morning (current temperature is -8 degrees and wind chill even worse), I suddenly realized I hadn't queued up a blog post before going to bed last night.  I said out loud, "Oops!" and rushed out to find a suitable rerun from this date in a previous year. Imagine my surprise to find this one from Canada's Alberta province, featured back in 2011:

An AI Generated Puzzle - 1/18/23

Today's puzzle takes us to Texas.  Monday was the annual wrap up of the MIT mystery hunt, which I've participated in the last several years.  Although the hunt was in person again for the first time since 2020 (I'm so glad I went to Boston for the hunt that year!) I decided to contribute remotely this year.  I was concerned about weather-related travel problems and knew from experience that I'd find the hunt itself exhausting.  Part of the theme for this year's hunt was the premise of:

My team ended up winning the hunt (I played a very small role ... there were >150 people on the team) so that means we'll be tasked with writing next year's hunt.  I'm not sure what my role in that will look like, but I do hope to be able to contribute.

I don't have my own copy yet, but this is what the coin looked like:
