Time-sensitive puzzle action!

Two announcements:

mug-image-1-300x300First, the January installment of Pete Muller’s Muller Monthly Music Meta is out now. Pete’s site maintains a leaderboard throughout the year, and you won’t want to miss your chance at getting points for figuring out January’s meta. The deadline for 2016′s first MMMM puzzle is this Sunday night. Get cracking!

Screenshot 2016-01-19 14.07.28Second, crossword constructor and kid-lit author Eric Berlin has launched a Kickstarter project called Puzzle Your Kids. If you support the project, you’ll get puzzles for kids age 9+ via email. If you know any clever and curious kids who enjoy figuring out puzzles, don’t miss your chance to get in on this Kickstarter. The funding deadline is February 5, and Eric’s about two thirds of the way to the total now. (There are sample puzzles you can print out if you’re not sure if your kid, grandkid, friend, or niece/nephew would be into this.)
