The American Crossword Puzzle Tournament looms!

It’s less than two weeks until the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament returns to Stamford, Connecticut, once more!

The 39th annual ACPT will run from April 1 to 3, and I’ll be attending for the second time. (Click here for my coverage of last year’s event!)

The tournament takes place over two days, with six puzzles to solve on Saturday, followed by one on Sunday. Then the top three finishers solve the championship puzzle on white boards in front of the audience.

On Friday and Saturday night, there are often puzzle events, demonstrations, and panels by top puzzlers and figures in the puzzle world as well. Author and friend of the blog Eric Berlin will be hosting an Escape the Room-inspired puzzle hunt!

I’ll be around for the festivities on Saturday, and once again I’ll be sitting in with my pals at the Penny Press/Dell Magazines booth, offering some great puzzles and meeting topnotch competitors and constructors alike.

How many PuzzleNationers and fellow puzzle fiends are attending? Come by, I’d love to meet you!

You can click here to register for the event, and there are also options to solve by mail or online from the comfort of your home! Oh, and if you’re looking for advice for solving under tournament conditions, look no further than right here!

I hope to see you there! And if you’ve got any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
