Welcome to the June issue of GAMES WORLD OF PUZZLES. Before we celebrate the start of summer, though, let’s rewind for a moment to early spring and an important event in the puzzle world. The 41st annual American Crossword Puzzle Tournament took place in Stamford, Connecticut, on March 23–25.

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 Across clues or two Down clues that seem to have the same answer, add up their clue numbers to determine the place in the grid where 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 the box labeled 18 (1 + 17). Note: Tags such as “Hyph.” and “2 wds.” have been omitted. ANSWER, PAGE 70 ACROSS 1 Leader of a famous sleigh team 2 Place to sit at a diner 3 Sprinting 4 Nose, colloquially 5 Amount taken…

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. ANSWER, PAGE 70…

The answer to each Syllabism clue is a word or words made up of some of the syllables listed above the clues. The number of syllables in each answer is in parentheses following the clue. The dashes indicate the number of letters in the answer. After you use a syllable, cross it off; each syllable will be used only once and every syllable will be used in one of the answers. When you are through, read down the first letters of the answer words and then the last letters and you will discover the name of a person followed by a quotation by that person. ANSWERS, PAGE 80…
