Puzzle Party! (How Did I Miss This?)

Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE board games and puzzles of all sorts. And so it comes as a shock to me that I somehow missed all the chatter going on in the kidlitblogosphere about Winston Breen's Puzzle Party*.

To celebrate the release of Eric Berlin's new book The Potato Chip Puzzles, a jim dandy of a puzzle contest is going on and there's a chance to win really awesome prizes!

The contest is pretty simple and straightforward:

Each day between April 16th and 22nd, a new puzzle will be posted on a different blog. Go to the blog, click on the puzzle link, solve the puzzle, and e-mail your answer to by midnight. Every day, one winner will be selected from the correct answers. That winner gets a signed copy of The Potato Chip Puzzles.

But it gets better! To answer the final puzzle on April 22nd, you'll need all of the daily answers. And the winner of the final puzzle will win not only a signed copy of The Potato Chip Puzzles, but two dozen other books from G.P. Putnam's Sons!

Today's puzzle is posted at Fuse #8, but be sure to go back and solve yesterday's puzzle over at A Patchwork of Books, and then head on over to Shelf Elf tomorrow, etc.

Yesterday's puzzle was easy, cheest, one, two, threesy, but today's is proving to be a bit more challenging. I've figured out most of it on my own, but I think it's time to call in the reinforcements.

*Note: I recognize that The Potato Chip Puzzles is a book for middle readers and not YAs, who doesn't love a contest with books as prizes and fun puzzles to solve along the way? Just participating is guaranteed to be fun!
