after a great response to the first issue, i sat down & wrote twenty-five brand-new logic puzzles about zines, punks, & anarchists, & put together "up the logic punks!" #2. for the uninitiated, this link
should give you an idea of what the heck a logic puzzle is. the puzzles i wrote for the zine are of the grid variety.
the zine features an introduction for new puzzle enthusiasts, explaining how to solve a puzzle & offering some useful hints & tricks, complete with a sample puzzle & detailed explanation of the solution. there is also an answer key for all the puzzles, so you can check & see if you were right. puzzle topics include punks shoplifting from the liquor store, zine designs that bear a suspicious resemblence to one another, dietary restrictions wreaking havoc on a collective house dinner schedule, 24-hour zine parties, the habits of obnoxious jerks at protest marches, people charging way too much to wholesale their zines, & more! there is even a five-part mystery puzzle (solve the first four puzzles in order to have the necessary information to solve the final puzzle!).
a sample puzzle:
this zine is $2 anywhere in the world. you can paypal me at firstname.lastname@example.org or mail your order to me at:
