Usually when a person submits something to a magazine, its final format is dramatically different than what was originally sent due to the addition of illustrations, etc. This puzzle, surprisingly, is EXACTLY like how I submitted it down to the rectangular boxes with numbers in the corners. Kind of fun.
I remember writing this puzzle back in the Winter of 2006. I created it along with a series of other puzzles that I wrote in this same style yet on different topics. They were a lot of fun to create.
I never tire of seeing something I’ve written or created show up in print. It’s like Christmas every time! 🙂
