Puzzle News… comin’ at ya!

PuzzleNation is just one part of a much greater puzzle community — our Diggin’ Words dog Copernicus up there is always surfing the Internet for puzzle news —┬áso in today’s blog post, I’d like to turn the spotlight toward some of our fellow puzzlers.

First off, let’s give some hale and hearty congratulations to crossword puzzler Matt Gaffney, who recently celebrated his Weekly Crossword Contest’s five-year anniversary! (His metapuzzles are a real treat!)

In other crossword news, there are only three days left to pitch in on Peter Gordon’s kickstarter!

Infamous for the difficulty of his Fireball Crosswords, Gordon is looking to expand into a weekly series called Fireball Newsweekly Crosswords, which he promises will be timely, well-constructed, and challenging (but not demoralizingly so). Here’s hoping he meets his goal!

And finally, a magazine produced by our pals at PennyDellPuzzles made a surprising cameo in a recent Twitter post by comedian Bo Burnham. (Vine videos allow for quick loops of a few seconds, and they’re a recent addition to the arsenal of many celebrities and comedians on Twitter.)

If there’s anything puzzle-noteworthy going on in your neck of the Internet woods, please let us know so we can spread the word!
