If you dig puzzle suites with meta answers, you’re going to love Patrick Blindauer’s new Las Vegas Puzzlefest. It’s like a casino’s all-you-can-eat buffet, only with puzzles instead of greasy food.
The fastest finisher gets one of the grand prizes (a full set of Patrick’s available puzzle books), while the winners of the other grand prize and the runner-up prizes are drawn from among the people who submit the meta answer by February 8. So maniacal speed-solving is totally optional here, and you can certainly use the full two months if you want to.
Visit Patrick’s site to order the Las Vegas Puzzlefest. $11.11 for 11 crosswords; no added charge for the meta puzzle challenge.
