Hello, Thank you for your reply. Does that mean the book that is showing on that page (Spring 2017) is actually Volume #24? I just want to be sure I'm ordering the right one. Thanks again.




The image showing is just a placeholder. The most recent volume is #24, which is on sale until March 2018.

I'm sorry to be a pest, but I'm still a little confused as to which book to order in that list. The one that is showing (the one you called the "placeholder") is the one I want to buy (it says Spring 2017 on the cover.) But I'm not sure if that is volume #23 or volume #24 in the list.


Penny uses an odd numbering scheme for these books. The Summer and Winter editions are given numbers; the Fall and Spring are "Special Editions" so they are just labeled with their season. The winter editions are the latest, so Winter 2018, or #24, is the latest one. (#23 is effectively, therefore, the Summer of 2017.)

So you're right that they did not post all four books from the last year; only the two numbered editions.

I hope this helps!

Misprint Crossword

I've been enjoying the solving in my Dell Crossword Extravaganza, Volume 5, May 2017. On page 115, Misprint Crossword, there's one small error.

Each clue is to have a misprinted letter that you must change in order to enter the correct answer in the diagram. Example: "Delay", should be "Decay", so answer is ROT. Clue 66 Across: "Go in", answer: ENTER. Whoops, no change needed on the clue, so.....a misprinted misprint!

Didn't affect the fun I had working on it, though! smile

Hi,
I'm looking for an older issue of Logic Lover's Math & Logic Problems - March 2010. I've completed most of the cross sums #5 and #6 but am stumped on just a small portion of the puzzle. I only have a paper copy and am looking for the solutions that state it's on page 75. Does anyone have the solutions? I sat for 4 hours yesterday and I just can't figure it out. I'm wondering if I did something wrong on another part and that's why it's not panning out. I'm throwing my hands up on this one. Thanks in advance!

I'd be willing to have a go at the puzzle. Since it's "fairly simple", I might have a good chance at solving it. Please post the clues (or a link to a photo of them), PLUS your solution to the puzzle. Then I'll compare my answers to yours.

I was given this puzzle torn out of the puzzle book so I do not have the solutions. I just want to check my answers to puzzle #23 in "Penny Press Means Puzzle Pleasure" from June 2012. It was fairly simple, but I still want to verify my answers. Thank you

Puzzle app for phone

I put the puzzle app on my phone and while the app works well the ads are real annoying. Not a small banner type ad but a utube type ad. Dell is a major company and should be providing this ad free as it only gives 3 puzzles a day. I did like the app and paid the outrageous fee of $9.99 to remove the ads because I am addicted to cross words.
Dell if you are listening you should provide either a ad free app, or maybe a small banner ad at no cost.
If you are going to charge for ad free then at least provide more then 3 puzzles a day.

Hello, I always purchase the latest Sudoku Family Favorites issue. However, I have noticed for quite some time that the new books are not showing up for sale.

I click on "Our Products," then click on "Sudoku," then click on "Puzzle Books," then click on "Family Favorites," then click on "Select Volume." The last time this was updated was Autumn 2016. Ironically, the sample Family Favorites Sudoku Book showing on the screen when this list pops up is the Spring 2017 book, but it, too, is not listed for sale. Can we get this updated, so that I can purchase the newer versions? Thanks.

Hi, Weisswelsh!

The newest issue of Sudoku Family Favorites is Volume 24, which is currently listed when you click on "Select Volume."

Hope this helps,

"Or" Else, Missing List Word Seeks, #6, Vol. 16

This puzzle is found in Volume 16 of Missing List Word Seeks Selected Puzzles. The heading reads:

The 5-letter words hidden in this puzzle diagram all contain OR. Use your puzzle-solving expertise to successfully locate and loop all of them in record time.

Editors, I would just like to bring to your attention that the word "CHORAL", listed in the answer key in the back, is actually a six-letter word. I can't successfully locate and loop these words in record time if I have to be on the lookout for trick answers. LOL wink

Thank you!

By this clue, yellow indeed isn't Aleta. Reverie also isn't Aleta, and Reverie isn't yellow. Where it says "three boxes," it means three different boxes.

Clue #3 - "Three boxes are Aleta's, the one containing the Reverie soap, and the one with the yellow facecloth."
Solution states that Yellow isn't Aleta. Help....

Thanks for your post. The puzzle asks you to determine where each competitor finished in the top 20, from 14th place to 18th place. 14th place is higher than 15th, which is higher than 16th, etc., so it is true to say that the dinosaur, in 16th place, finished ahead of the mascot that does jumping jacks, in 17th place, and behind Beany, in 15th.
We hope this helps. Thanks again for your post!

Thanks for your post. We took another look at this puzzle. Our solution has Alvin as the Mercedes owner who gives a generous $100 tip, and it has Vicki receiving a tip of just $1 from the motorist on level 3. Since 100 divided by 1 is 100, it is true, as clue 1 states, that the amount of of the tip Vicki received from Alvin ($100) divided by the amount she received from the one on level 3 ($1) equals the amount she received from the Mercedes owner ($100). Note that nothing in the clue indicates that Alvin himself can't be the Mercedes owner.
I hope this helps! Thanks again for your post.

Part 1: Clue 4: The dinosaur finished immediately ahead of the mascot that does jumping jacks but immediately behind Beany.
We already know that the numbers are 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 and Beany is 15. So how does the dinosaur finish 15?

Solution actually says:
Beany finishes 15
dinosaur 16
Jumping Jacks 17

So dinosaur is now ahead of beany, behind jumping jacks. Which at least there's numbers for but still makes that clue incorrect.
