Continuing EnigMarch in 2023!   This year I'm limiting each puzzle to half a page in size, but same rules as before.  Available in PDF version.

​Like what you see?  Leave a tip in the tip jar!

I will try to post these daily as close to midnight PST as I can.  Each day will have associated puzzle file(s) and a separate answers file posted the next day.  Each day, EnigMarch sends out a "prompt" to inspire that day's puzzle. 

ERRATA

Day 24:  Line 5 originally went out with MDKFWNABKMDY, should instead be MDKFWNABMDY.

Day 26:  First Yellow Blooms clue, "Assessment of acidity" should be followed by (2 wds.)

Day 30:  In 18-Down's clue, "presidential" is the correct spelling.

4/2:  After a little break, the answers to Day 31 have been posted, and we're done for the year!  Thank you everyone!

WEE R KNOT, UM, USED

PUZZLE

ANSWER

I decided to take the challenge for EnigMarch in 2022, and release a puzzle a day during the entire month.  Some of these puzzle types will be old standards, but others will be variations or mashups of the puzzles you know and love.  Some puzzles will be inspired by other puzzle and game writers' work.  I'm looking for variety!

Like what you see?  Leave a tip in the tip jar!

I will try to post these daily as close to midnight PST as I can.  Each day will have a puzzle file and a separate answers file posted the next day.  Each day, EnigMarch sends out a "prompt" to inspire that day's puzzle.  Even though I've written parts of these puzzles to stock up, I'll do my best to incorporate the day's prompt.

ERRATA

3/7:  It's come to my attention that Nurikabe #5 from the 3/6 set currently has multiple solutions.  I'll be working to revise it so that there's one solution.

3/8:  An early version went out with the incorrect clue number 30-41; it has been corrected to 30-42.

3/10:  Correction in final paragraph from "non-unique" to "unique." 

3/23:  Just realized Puzzle #3, without any given letters in the answer, is ambiguous enough that I had to add a letter already written into the solution to disambiguate everything.

3/31:  And that's it!  Solutions are up to 3/31.  I will try to redo #5 from the Nurikabe when I can.
