Default other games

I do some Sudoku online, and occasionally some crosswords. I've done a few kakuro on paper, and I'm thinking of looking for some online.

I like sudoku, acrostics, and drop quotes.

I also love sudoku and used to play it quite a bit until I found this site. But the logic puzzles are also good too once you get the method. It used to take me about 40 minutes to solve each one (with a big score of 10) but I can now solve them a lot quicker.

I've never tried drop quotes and have never even heard of kakuro. But it's probably a good idea to stay away from any more games. I'm running a business and also in school so online games cut into my sleep time. zzzzzzzzz

Peter Gordon's NY Sun Crosswords are the next best thing to the New York Times, but unlike the Times, they are totally free of charge! You can also download them so that you don't have to be online to solve.

Funny you should mention Peter - he was the editor of our forthcoming book, Notable Quotable Cryptograms, which features 500 puzzles from Cryptograms.org. It'll be launched by Sterling Publications on November 4th.

By the way, we made a point of publishing the record time and name of each record holder for all 500 puzzles in the book, so keep an eye peeled for your user name! The actual manuscript was completed a while ago though so I'm sure at least a few (if not most) of those records have since been topped. :-)

Thanks for the info, Stephen. I see that this publication is ready for pre-order on Barnes & Noble's site. I'll definitely get a copy.
