By sheer coincidence, I recently discovered that an online version of the New York Times crossword was, for some reason, white-listed by my work internet.  This is actually quite good new for me, as there’s only so much Food Network you can take and the comments on the news these days fill me with angst and fear for my fellow man.  But a little word puzzle helps to take the edge off, especially since they keep using “Ulee’s Gold” (because of the vowels) leading to today’s 53-down query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) has also discovered that I have a knack for Sukdoku, despite it seemingly being math, asking: What type of puzzle do you find the MOST interesting puzzle of them all?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.


  1. I really enjoy picross. There’s a Konami pixel puzzle collection on IPhone that’s free with ads and no micro transactions.

    Cryptic crosswords. Really good ones have clues that you ponder, go crazy over, come back to, and slap your forehead wondering why you didn’t see it before.
