"41 Days and Counting!" says the banner atop the home page of the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament. And with that, Will Shortz has announced the evening events and opened registration.
The Friday games will feature Eric Berlin's "Brooklyn Crossword Extravaganza" brainteasers.
Saturday will be Game Show Night, and also featured will be a film by Ed Stein called "Wordploy". (Hmmm...)
For Sunday, Grant Barrett, co-host of the radio program "A Way with Words", will be taking over from Neil Conan as co-commentator of the Sunday B and A finals along with the ever-stalwart Merl Reagle. Barrett and his radio co-host Martha Barnette will hand out the prizes at the awards luncheon.
