This puzzle is being posted in celebration of another exciting puzzle event! I submitted a puzzle to Pavel Curtis’Ænigmatic Addenda series, and it’s been published today. You can see it here: Addendum 15. If you solve it, you could win a free physical puzzle, so I highly encourage everyone to try it.

This is not a return to regular posting yet, but I’m currently working on a backlog, and I’ll hopefully start posting again in the next few months. I hope you look forward to it!
