First things first: I’d like to thank everyone who sent us kind words and fond reminiscences prompted by August’s 40th anniversary issue. Our editors enjoyed learning about the role Games has played in your lives. For example, reader Howard Kestin wrote: “I have consumed every issue, cover-to-cover, since the very first. I have never discarded an issue, though I’m not sure where all of them are. Thanks from this inveterate gamester (all kinds) for 40 years of enjoyable, fascinating involvement.” For longtime reader David LaRochelle, Marvin Miller’s piece on The Nationwide Scavenger Hunt was especially evocative.

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 Fourth position, in a batting order 2 Home of Walt Disney World 3 Serving of food 4 Follow through, as…

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 appears in parentheses following the clue. Blanks indicate the number of letters in an answer. After you use a syllable, cross it off; none will be used more than once, and every syllable will be used in exactly one answer. When you’re done, read down the first letters of the answer words and then the last letters, and you’ll discover the name of a person, followed by a quote from that person. ANSWER, PAGE 70…
