…from the editor

Idon’t know about you, but I sure am glad that February is a short month. With the holidays behind us and the frigid winter cold firmly settled in, I just want to hunker down and stay warm. Cozy sweaters, warm mittens, and a hot cup of cocoa help—and so does a brand new issue of GAMES WORLD OF PUZZLES. This February, we have plenty of articles and puzzles to amuse, challenge, and perplex you. In addition to his regular “Game On!” column, Raymond Simon contributes a lighthearted feature for those who like their kisses mixed with comedy: “Love, Hollywood: A Rom-Com Trivia Quiz” (page 36). Be forewarned, film fans, this one includes way more than just When Harry Met Sally… Simon’s not the only one doing double duty in this issue. Scott…

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 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. ACROSS 1 Apartment complex components 2 Movers’ helpers 3 Income tax filings 4 Calm and peaceful 5 Image on Utah’s state flag 6 On the horizon 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. ANSWER…
