Puzzle Notes

Dear friends,

We really can't wait for you to solve this fun and feminist themeless by the great Claire Rimkus. We think you'll find it moderately challenging!

Claire Rimkus posts regular puzzles (alongside fellow Inkubator constructor Rachel Fabi) on their site Just Gridding! Claire lives in Massachusetts with a cat named Sundae (a stay-at-home mom) and Sundae's kitten, Cherry (an aspiring social media influencer).

If you haven't yet renewed your Inkubator subscription, click here to get another year of fun, feminist puzzles for $30. A subscription to the Inkubator makes a great gift, too! And all 2022 subscriptions include access to all puzzles from the 2021 subscription year.

A big announcement from our sibling publication, the American Values Club Crossword! AVCX has corralled four new, independently governed editing teams to deliver four new weekly features: one additional regular crossword (with an emphasis on themeless puzzles), one cryptic crossword, one or two midis (between 9x9 and 11x11), and a trivia game each weekend. These features will all be solvable on our new website interface (as well as via emailed files). On top of this, 5% of all revenue for these new features will be donated to worthy charities as the editors see fit. Back the AVCXpansion Kickstarter to support this fantastic set of projects.

Coming up next, on December 23: a dot matrix from Kristy McGowan.

All best,
Laura, Tracy, Stella, and Brooke
