I don't know how many of you get Games magazine, but in the August 2011 issue, on page 25 is a puzzle I found fascinating, and can be replicated in different sizes, too, which is good for me. I don't know who created it, but this one is by Douglas Tench, it's called "The Hexagon", and it's basically a bunch of triangles formed together to create a giant (in this case) hexagon, and you put letters in each of the triangles, which are kind of like crossword squares, only triangular. There are two ways to solve this, you probably need to use both. One is by row, and the other is by ring, going clockwise. The one in the magazine has 12 rows and 5 rings, while mine will have 8 rows and 3 rings. This is the first of what I hope will be many and a Sunday tradition. So, anyway, if you enjoy crosswords (probably not many of you do), you'll enjoy The Hexagon. Here's a link to Hexagon #1. Answers available upon request. Enjoy!
P.S. I e-mailed the guy who runs Aries Puzzles to see if he liked it. This was Friday. He never did e-mail me back. I don't know why.
