Another heaping helping of fun for acrostics fans! Let the solving begin. Michael Ashley, a regular contributor to Games magazine and one of America’s best-known crosticians, has devised another 110 devious acrostics to delight puzzle-doers. They’re entertaining and challenging, mixing the fun of crosswords with a bit of code-breaking. Start by solving the clues, such as Scottish philosopher of the 18th century (2 wds.).” The answer’s David Hume; write it on the numbered blanks. Then, transfer each letter to the grid, putting it in the correspondingly numbered square. The result, when you read the finished diagram from left to right: a thought-provoking quotation. To find out who wrote it and where it’s from, just look at the first letters of the answer words. The featured luminaries include Muhammad Ali, Erma Bombeck, Joyce Maynard, Jerry Seinfeld, and Mark Twain.
