Puzzling from A to Z – Day 20 – T is for Tetris

T

Any Tetris fans out there? The first computer game that I was truly addicted to was Tetris, so I was thrilled when an on-line game creator allowed me to make my own version using P.A.W.S. animals.

I have to admit I’m kind of addicted to this. My highest score being around 200 lines. How many can you get? Post in the comments if you like, and I apologize in advance for any lost hours of productivity!

Puzzling from A to Z – Day 19 – S is for Sudoku!

S

Do we have some Sudoku fans out there? Today’s puzzle is a special P.A.W.S. themed Sudoku puzzle that you can either solve online or print out the PDF and solve on paper. But wait . . . there’s no numbers! That’s right, for this is a letter Sudoku. Instead of the numbers 1 through 9 we have exactly 9 letters of the alphabet and if you solve the puzzle correctly (by regular Sudoku rules), the name of a  favorite P.A.W.S. character will spell out along the bottom row of the grid.

P

Welcome to P day. P of course is for P.A.W.S. – my YA fantasy series and the magical organization within it – The Partnership of Animagi, Werewolves, and Shapeshifters.

The first two books in the series are out, and this April along with Blogging from A to Z, I’m also participating in Camp NaNoWriMo in an attempt to finish book 3 of the series.

So do I have some P.A.W.S. themed puzzles? You bet I have.
