Comments: Come and Solve It

Congrats on your 6/13/10 NYTimes puzzle. I can't remember when I've done a harder or more clever one.

LOVED the puzzle! One of the most fun and satisfying I've done in a while. Ingenious.

Wonderful puzzle today! I loved finding each layer of the gimmick. It had the multiple aha moments that every great puzzle has. It more than makes up for that puzzle you posted a couple of weeks ago.:-)

Masterful work, LB. Once I clued in on the gimmick, I had to print out a clean copy since my magazine was pretty much trashed. Tough but fair and with an amazing payoff.

Interview in the NY Times. Not too shabby.

I've done many a crossword in my life and you had me for a bit - absolutely brilliant concept! Really enjoyed it and looking forward to the next one.

Indeed, a very nice puzzle; I saw the flag clues and thought, "Well, gee, that's an awfully boring theme, especially for Francis", and sure enough, the theme was much, much more interesting.

And: "Also, if Patrick Berry wrote it, probably it’s an awesome puzzle"--so true, so true.

Had kind of an adventure getting a copy (see link), but it was well worth it. Nice job!
