Are you a puzzle fiend? Want to put your puzzling brain to work for some cold, hard cash?
On Saturday, November 30, at noon on the dot, Vermont's own Jim Rader — creator of the Quip-Find word puzzle — will post a special puzzle on the Quip-Find blog. The first person to submit the correct solution wins $100, plus autographed copies of both Quip-Find books.
Sounds simple, right?
Be warned: These puzzles are tough. Best to get some practice in before the big day. Head over to blog.quipfind.com to learn the basics and solve some of the puzzles posted there.
The contest is in celebration of the second anniversary of Rader's first book of Quip-Finds, Never Play Leapfrog With a Unicorn. It also marks the first anniversary of his second book, When Eating an Elephant.
Rader will sign those books and give a puzzle-solving demonstration at Burlington's Peace and Justice Center on Wednesday, December 11, at 5:30 p.m.
