My university newspaper published a syndicated version of the New York Times Crossword Puzzle each weekday. My friends and I would each work on the puzzle in the mornings, in between classes or at lunch, and would inevitably talk about it later, helping each other with the tougher clues. I could usually do Monday and Tuesday pretty well, but by Friday, I definitely needed the help.
My goal is to recreate that community here, so in case you have missed the large blinking sign to your right, let me direct your attention to the fact that we are now offering the puzzle as a regular feature of abdpbt .com. Please note that the syndicated version runs behind the regular print edition, though it is unclear exactly how long. If you have been completing the crossword in the original (non-syndicated) print version, you will be slightly ahead of us here.
This will be updated every day automatically, and I am still working on the code to enable comments on the puzzles, etc., so you may see some changes in format over the next few days. Enjoy and spread the word to all of your friends who love crosswords!
