Short post today since I’m gonna be racing to Escape the Room later on. Gotta get focused! There’s another Sunday-size puzzle on the horizon. This one’s gonna be trickier. I don’t know exactly how tricky. I would recommend reading the puzzle Note, but if you want the extra challenge, ignore it at your own peril!

Enjoy the puzzle. There will be a new one on October 10.

Update, 10/6/15 @ 1:15 pm ET: My original difficulty rating for this puzzle was Spicy. Based on some Twitter chats with several other solvers who said this was quite the toughie, I’ve decided to change this puzzle’s rating to Super-Spicy. Hopefully you’ll still enjoy the taste no matter what the Scoville scale says!
