Welcome to the October issue of GAMES WORLD OF PUZZLES! It’s full of tricks and treats—puzzles, that is! And this month, we’ve got even more of them than usual, as much of our color section is devoted to puzzles. You might want to begin with “High-Low Quiz” (page 34), an illustrated trivia puzzle that tests your knowledge of facts and figures. Then move on to “Trite and True” (page 38), which challenges you to identify pictures that will complete all of the clichés in a hard-boiled murder mystery. Finally, there’s “Lock the Doors…” (page 42), a trivia quiz that covers a wide range of Halloween-related topics. Some questions will be a snap; others will leave you scratching your head. On the editorial side, check out Raymond Simon’s “The Fabulous Rachel Fabi.” In…

mixed doubles

Each answer word in this crossword variation has two clues leading to it, using different meanings of the word. The clues are separated into Across and Down, but are otherwise ordered randomly. When you find two clues that seem to have the same answer, add up their clue numbers to determine the place in the grid at which the answer should be entered. For example, if the clue for 1-Across were “Metallic element” and the clue for 17-Across read “Starring role,” the answer would be “lead,” which would go in 18-Across (1 + 17). Note: Tags such as “Hyph.” and “2 wds.” have been omitted. ACROSS 1 Two drinks, perhaps 2 Put into effect 3 Take to the air 4 Eponymous style of knife 5 Network started by Oprah Winfrey 6 Sounds from small bells 7 Cathedral in a…

There is one place for each letter of the alphabet in the 26 empty squares of each blank column in the diagram below. Fill in each letter so that a word of at least five letters is formed reading across only. Not all of the letters to the left and right of the empty box are used; it’s up to you to determine which ones are needed to complete familiar words. Some letters may fit in more than one of the empty squares to complete words, but we only came up with one arrangement that would complete a word in each row. Maybe you’ll find a better solution. Proper names are not allowed. ANSWERS 52-SKIDDOO…

who’s the man?

In this puzzle you’ll find 60 people and characters whose names have “the” in the middle. We’ve provided part of each name; the rest is for you to figure out and find in the grid below (names are hidden horizontally, vertically, and diagonally, and always in a straight line). As a solving hint, names are listed in alphabetical order. Circle each name you find; when you’re done, the remaining letters, reading left to right and top to bottom, will spell out the name of one more character who didn’t want to be seen. If you get stuck, check out the list of full names on page 78. ALEXANDER _____________ the Great _____________ the Giant _____________ the Hun _____________ the Kid _____________ the Clown _____________ the Vampire Slayer _____________ the Great _____________ the Entertainer _____________ the Big Red Dog _____________ the…
