Another daily email game like Uniquasivity where the goal is to not be eliminated. Each day you will be presented with a question whose answer is a number. Don’t know the answer? (you probably won’t). Make your best guesstimate. Because of all the supplied player answers, if yours is the farthest away from the true answer, you just might be eliminated!

Two-time reigning Puzzler of the Month has be dethroned. Matthew Gilman identified the theme of “States” and found 20 words that fit. I will just paste his answers here instead of typing them out myself.

state PARK
state of DESPAIR
POLICE state
state of DECAY
BADGER state
state of UNDRESS
GOLDEN state
LIQUID state
AFFAIRS of state (or state of AFFAIRS)
NANNY state
SWING state
BLUE state
state of GRACE
MENTAL state
state of FLUX
GARDEN state
Then these last two: state TABLE (which is a tool used in programming/logic/automation)
HALL of state (which is a Texas historical landmark)

While the last two were not my intended answers, they fit. I figured there would be other words that fit with STATE.

The final two answers were ROGUE state, and SECRETARY of state.

Gideon has successfully defended his title, and is July’s Kids Puzzler of the Month. The theme for the kids puzzle was also STATES. He aced it. Good job!


If you like solving pencil and paper type puzzles, playing along with game shows, or just like any excuse for competing, you have come to the right place.

I will be posting twice weekly puzzles for you to solve. There will be the occasional bigger puzzle event. There will be monthly/bi-monthly game shows like I used to run over at The Cutthroat Junction. What’s more, all of it is worth points to try and reach the top of the standings each month and dethrone the previous victor King of the Hill style. If you don’t give a hoot about points and just want to try your hand at the occasional puzzle that’s cool too.

Our first game show, beginning in March, will be $20,000 Pyramid (a fan favorite). To sign up, send an email to adobery+puzzlezone@gmail.com

The weekly puzzles will be posted on Mondays and Thursdays, so simply check back to grab the puzzle and read the rules.

Anyone is welcome, so feel free to invite others to the site.


Happy Year’s End everyone!

It’s been another fun-filled one at the Casa de Leche and it seems it should be recapped in some fashion so we can truly appreciate it. Now I’ve been very busy shaking poop and did not have time to do something as intricate as last year. It may turn out lame, but I had to do SOMETHING.

“But Ryan,” you all say, “you’re months behind on reading writing entries. You didn’t follow Big Brother at all. You didn’t play in most of the Werewolf games. You’re a hack of a writer. What makes you think you’re qualified to do a rundown of this year’s events at the CdL?”

Well, I’m not. That’s why you all helped to recap for me. You may have already figured it out, but those words I requested weren’t for the upcoming Cutthroat Junction gameshow. Let’s do this Mad Libs style!
