Solution to LH5 #14

First, let me introduce this fantastic puzzle from Numinous, a name I recognized from the Rex Parker blog comments. Visually arresting and Just Plain Fun, this LH5-ish bucks trends, kicks ass, and takes names.

Next, not only did we experience a period of torpidity (big “torpid” fan here), but I will be away until 10/6. If I can figure out how to, like, schedule a post I will be sure to put up a great Sunday 9×9 we recently received.

Last, thank you to all who have submitted L’il High Fives n’ Nines– your puzzles are in good hands and will be posted in the upcoming weeks. Thank you for participating in this Fête des Mots Croisés! APRÈS NOUS LE DÉLUGE!

Solution to LH5 #13

I used to have real mixed feelings about Twitter– sometimes Tweeting petulantly about how stupid and self-serving and useless it is while, well, using it. But since starting to roll with the Crossword Crowd, it mostly makes me feel warm and sometimes fuzzy. The media has allowed me to be social with so many fun, funny, smart and sweet people that I can’t stay mad at it.

Tony Zito, today’s constructor, is an example of someone who I’m very glad to have met on Twitter. When he reached out with an interest in constructing, I happily gave encouragement and information and, in return, received some very awesome puzzles right out of the gate. I hope you enjoy his Sunday offering as much as I did!  And maybe in the future we’ll see another great indie puzzle blog pop up (hint-hint, Tony).

…And we’re back! Consider the last two days to be the calm before this microburst of a puzzle storm from Andy Kravis. To quote Rex Sharper’s excellent Satuday write-up, this LH5 definitely “produce[s] nice feelings in the  pleasure centers of the human brain.” I’d say “please enjoy this puzzle” but it’s dumb to plead for things that are unavoidable.

Good evening. Yup, It is a good evening because you are here solving Erin Milligan-Milburn’s LH5! Mere hours after I sent a few pokes and nudges her way on Twitter, I was sent this wonderful puzzle! Lucky me, and lucky you.

Erin has also made a BIG puzzle and here is a link to her construction debut on Erik Agard’s site, GLUTTON FOR PUN. And now your dinner plans are all set: appetizer = LH5, main course = BH15.

Solution to LH9 #2

With all the submissions pouring in, I forgot I had a L’il High Five of my own kicking around! I can’t remember if this is my only LH5 to use black squares, but they there are– 6 of them. Enjoy filling in the rest of the squares!

Although the puzzle is titled #8, don’t be fooled! It was just #8 at the time and I am lazy.

Also of great importance, Michael started putting the apostrophe in “L’il” and that’s probably how it should have been all along. Lih-uhl.
