Here comes a bulleted list.
- We're little under two weeks away from the Boston Crossword Tournament on April 11. This is the second go-around of this here Tournament run by my buddy, test-solver, and all around nice guy Joon Pahk. I was unable to make the first one as I was in Denver, but it looks to be another winner. Joon and I will have puzzles in the tournament. Couple two three crossword celebrities will be in the house: Will Shortz, Ryan & Brian, and uh, me, silly. Besides, it will be T-minus 4 days until Tax Day. Lament with me how much money the government takes away from us. And what's better than a day of puzzles to distract oneself? Hoo boy. Click here for more info.
- I've mentioned it a couple times, but there's some stellar variety puzzles at the Wall Street Journal on Saturday. I had to play catch up this weekend, but I wanted to bring to everyone's attention (if they haven't already done it) this Marching Bands puzzle from a few weeks back, by (who else?) Crossword Jesus #1. I utterly love solving these puzzles. Great, great stuff.
- Slight book-keeping point of order: If you were thinking about getting a custom puzzle made for Mother's Day, but haven't hit me up yet, I suggest doing so soon. We have plenty of time, but the month ahead is starting to fill up fast. Thanks.
- Lastly, if you liked the puzzles this month, would you please strongly consider giving a little bit into the tip jar. BEQ.com will always be free. And it will always be a breath of fresh air in the puzzling community. Yet there are small costs to keep this running smoothly and efficiently. Any contribution helps out immeasurably. As a thank you, I will give one random donor a copy of "Diagramless." Thanks.
