Important Note: Puzzles #62-68 have been removed from Devil Cross for the time being because they may become future Washington Post puzzles. My apologies for the inconvenience. Puzzles #1-61 and #69 are still available to solve.

Oh, you thought I’d forgotten about themeless puzzles? Nope, I haven’t. But this one’s mega-sized! Because why not think big?

Have to run to a choir rehearsal, so here are some quick announcements:

  1. Kameron Austin Collins has jumped into the indie puzzle game with his new site HIGH:Low. It’s a biweekly themeless puzzle that you can sign up for here. His first one was a nice, nice puzzle. It’s Devil Cross-approved.
  2. There’s a new daily crossword blog out there, but this one is for the indies! It’s called New Grids on the Block, and they’re reviewing BuzzFeed and other puzzles with a sorta irreverent flavor. I think you’ll enjoy it.

Also, please note that my online widget for solving the crossword isn’t working right now, so you can’t solve right in the internet browser. But you can still solve in Across Lite and on the PDF as normal. Update, 10/17/15 @ 6:30 pm ET: I fixed the widget, so all methods for solving are available. YAY!

That’s all for now. Enjoy the mega-sized themeless goodness.
