Welcome to Eight Days of Books, Puzzles and Purrs

If you haven’t joined the Facebook Event yet – what are you waiting for?

This is the puzzle hub of the event. Two main puzzly things will be happening here.

Firstly I’m rerunning the puzzle hunt I created last Chanukah for my son Joey. As I have many more followers on this blog and Facebook than a year ago I thought if would be fun to introduce this hunt to some new eyes, AND I’m offering some prizes to those who complete the hunt this year.

Grand Prize – drawn at random from all the correct entries – a signed copy of Paws4Logic (Signed by authors – Debbie Manber Kupfer and Joey Kupfer) when it is released in early 2015,

Three runner-up prizes of PDF copies of Paws4Logic.

Secondly, each day of the event they’ll be a separate puzzle with a prize of an ebook of one of my titles. Today’s puzzle is a P.A.W.S. sudoku. This is an interactive puzzle, but if you would prefer to print it out and solve it on paper click the little blue PDF  button under the puzzle for that option.

Solve the puzzle and then send me the name of the student at P.A.W.S. which appears on the bottom row along with the animal that is his animagus (you may have to do a little research on this website to find that out!) Send the answer on the contact form below or message me on Facebook. One lucky winner will win an ebook of P.A.W.S. or Argentum for yourself or (if you already have it) to gift to a friend.

Here’s the Puzzle:

Secondly, each day of the event they’ll be a separate puzzle with a prize of an ebook of one of my titles. Today’s puzzle is a St. Louis Wordseek. This is a wordseek I created originally for Missouri Baptist Cancer Center (As some of you folks know I am a breast cancer survivor and know first hand that having distractions such as puzzles to solve are very helpful when you are in the treatment room).

Find the entries (which are all St. Louis landmarks) and then the remaining letters will spell out a classic St. Louis question. Send that question to me (with the answer if you’d like) in the the contact form below. One lucky winner will win an ebook of Fauxpocalypse, for yourself or (if you already have it) to gift to a friend.

Originally posted on TwistedSifter:

Writer and illustrator Austin Light recently shared a funny series of sketches from his notebook that reimagines movie titles with one letter removed. The idea started on reddit where users were asked to, “Pick a movie, remove one letter, give a brief description“.

As a daily art project, Light took the concept one step further, drawing a scene from the imaginary film. He also penned a brief synopsis for each. You can see the entire album on Imgur. For more from Austin, check him out at the links below.

TLAAP_tile_martini

This quiz contains ten categories representing different areas of knowledge. Each category requires you to choose one answer from a range of possible correct answers. Your goal for each category is to choose a correct answer that is chosen by as few other players as possible. A correct answer scores 1 point plus 1 point for every other player who chooses the same answer. An incorrect answer receives a penalty score: the highest correct-answer score for the given category plus 1. The player with the lowest total score wins.

M-A-S-H_TV_title_screen

The categories in this game are named for characters in the 1972-1983 television series M*A*S*H, based on the 1970 feature film and the 1968 novel by Richard Hooker. Each category’s subject matter is only tangentially related to the character, thus a familiarity with the M*A*S*H franchise is not required. The notation “11C” refers to Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary, Eleventh Edition.
