We extend you a “warm” welcome to our August issue! Packed with entertaining articles and puzzles of all stripes, this issue is perfect for filling those leisurely summer hours. So without further ado, here are some of the highlights. Summertime means that kids of all ages are home from school. If yours are into video games, you’ve undoubtedly heard of the game sensation called Fortnite. But what is it all about? We’ve put together “A Rookie’s Guide to Fortnite” (page 40) by staff writer Gabrielle Fabioneri. Whether you’re a parent or just a grownup who’s curious about what the kids are up to these days, check it out. If you’ve been following Andrew Parr’s “Moving Forward, Looking Back” series of articles, you know that this issue’s installment marks the grand finale. 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 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 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 Operation with a plus sign 2 More on time 3 Refrain from going all out 4 “The Warrior” band 5 Auckland natives, colloquially 6 Priest’s title 7…

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. 4 I 52-SKIDDOO…

too cool for words

If you’re in the mood to use your noodle, take a good look at the 14 clues below. The answer to each clue is a word or phrase containing at least three O’s—and no other vowels (except sometimes Y). Here’s another doozy of a hint: at least two of those O’s will be hooked up together. For example, the clue “Chain store that predated Walmart” would yield WOOLWORTH’S, while “Another name for a hero sandwich” is POOR BOY. You’re really cooking if you identify 10; make no boo-boos, and that’s too groovy. 1. Voracious reader __________________________________________ 2. Parking place for Rudolph and friends____________________ 3. Powerful but portable song blaster_______________________ 4. Freckled friend of Buffalo Bob_____________________________ 5. Spend too much time lazing around_______________________ 6. A certain macaw’s favorite cereal_________________________ 7. The study of animals______________________________________ 8.
