You may be familiar with the board game Schmovie, hashtag games on Twitter, or @midnight’s Hashtag Wars segment on Comedy Central.
For years now, we’ve been collaborating on puzzle-themed hashtag games with our pals at Penny Dell Puzzles, and this month’s hook was #PennyDellSpacePuzzles, mashing up Penny Dell puzzles with planets, astronauts, constellations, celestial objects, and more!
Examples include: World Seeks, Buzz All-Four-One-drin, and Tossing & Saturning.

Naturally, the intrepid puzzlers who submitted these marvelous puns couldn’t resist taking a crack at Neil Armstrong’s iconic words:
- Two for One small step for man; one giant leap for mankind.
- One small Step by Step for man; one giant leap for mankind.
- One small Step by Step for man; one giant leap for Three of a Kind.
- One small Step by Step for man; one Puzzler’s Giant leap for mankind.
And to close out today’s entry, a special shout-out to several sci-fi savvy puzzlers!
The first offered a delightful take on a famous TV monologue:
Space: the final Mind Tickler. This is the Grand Tour of the Lucky Star-ship Penny. Its Five-Alive mission: to Explora-strange-new-worlds, to Word Seek out new Face-to-Face Puzzlers and new Cryptobotanies, to Bowl Game where no solver has Word Gamed before.
The second, more movie-minded contributor said: All I could think about when I read the theme was space was the Spaceballs theme song…
If you’re livin’ in a Build-a-Pyramid and you haven’t got a Connection
Well, you’re gonna be in Double Trouble cause we’re gonna Split & Splice your air
‘Cause what you Give is what we Take and all we do is dirty Decisions
We’re the Spaceballs, What’s Next! cause we’re the Spaceballs
We’re the Mixmaster of space
Hey, Don’t mess Around the Block with the Spaceballs!

don’t know if I have right place to ask this questions, but can I and how do I get crosswords to do on my laptop.
PuzzleNation provides crosswords that can be solved on your phone or tablet, not on your laptop. I can check with our friends at PennyDellPuzzles and see if they have downloadable content for you!
