WORDS WITHOUT FRIENDS 3
This game of word solitaire is inspired by Solicross. Actually, it is Solicross. Don't sue me, Dell.

You have 15 turns to score as many points as possible by building words on the grid. Start by taking the first 7 letters from the LETTER LIST. Form an English word using two or more letters, and place it reading across (from left to right) or down (from top to bottom) in the grid, either starting in or ending in the shaded cell. On each successive turn, cross out the letters you used and replace them with the next letters from the LETTER LIST, and then play a new word using some or all of those letters. As in Scrabble, you can play at right angles to a previous word (either incorporating a letter from it or expanding it) or parallel to a previous word, but must adjoin some previous word; adjoining letters must always form words in crossword fashion, and all letters used in a single turn must be part of a single word.

Every turn, you score for the words you made on that turn. The score for a word is the sum of all the numbers it covers (whether those letters were played on that turn or not); multiple words formed in a single turn are added up together (with shared letters counting twice). If you use all 60 letters within 15 turns, give yourself 50 extra points.

My score for this game is 615 points. After you've gotten the highest score you can (or sooner, if getting high scores doesn't interest you), follow this link for the “puzzle version" of this puzzle, which indicates where I placed the tiles; you must determine which tiles to place each turn turn to form valid words and match my solution. Any game that beats my score of 615 points will be considered a solution to this “game version”. (All words will be checked against http://www.m-w.com/scrabble for validity.) Alternatively, I will accept any score of at least 500 points, so long as at most 2 words of 4 or more letters are formed that are also in my 615-point solution. (This prevents you from claiming credit for trivial changes to my solution which don't improve the score, but keep the score above 500. If you can find a trivial change to the solution which does improve the score, then you have earned my hearty congratulations.)

In an attempt to generate interest in this puzzle, and because I'm getting rusty at this “altruism” thing, I will donate 50 cents to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières for every solution to the puzzle version and every solution to the game version that I receive before February 17, 2016, at 8:00 AM CST, up to a maximum of $25. If I receive at least one solution to the game version that beats my score of 615 points, I will double this amount! (The last time I did something altruistic on this blog, one of my readers increased the impact of my altruism by matching my donation; if this happens again, I'll be sure to let you know. . . .)

SECTION SIX 8
This puzzle's grid has six rings and six sections. Each ring contains a series of words placed end to end, reading either clockwise or counterclockwise; all the words in a given ring will read in the same direction. Ring 1 (the outer ring) contains six answers that read clockwise; the starting spaces are numbered in the grid. Clues for the answers in the remaining rings are given in order, but their starting points and direction are for you to determine. The sections (separated by the heavy lines radiating from the center) will help you place the inner rings: in a given section, each ring segment contains all but one of the letters in the next segment outward. In other words, a section's outermost segment contains six letters; the next segment inward contains five of those six letters in some order; and so on, until only one of the original six letters remains.

Arrange the letters in the six starred spaces to form the final answer.

Ring 1
1 One with high hopes
2 Don't forbid
3 Lacking in knowledge
4 Preserve, perhaps
5 Mathematician and game theorist John
6 ____ Drama Island (2007-2008 cartoon)

Ring 2

PUZZLE ADVENT CALENDAR!
Speaking of things that are released on a schedule of one a day, fellow puzzler David Millar has been continuing his annual tradition of posting a puzzle and sharing one clue a day for the 25 days leading up to Christmas. This year, he has two puzzles: a logic puzzle about a Christmas gift exchange, and three overlapping sudoku grids. If you're skilled at logic, you should be able to solve over half of the digits in the sudoku with just the first 16 grid pieces. As a public service announcement, though, after hitting a contradiction in my grid and sharing my solving process with David, he realized that there's a mistake in the current (as of this writing) version of day 15: there should be a bar between the top-left cell and the middle-left cell.

DORK IS YES!
Some of you might recall that I dabble in music. After 5 years, I am finally ready to drop my second album! Titled Dork Is Yes!, this album consists of 24 tracks all created using the music-making software included in the Nintendo DS game WarioWare DIY. I will release one track every day from now until December 24, at which point the album will become available for download on Bandcamp. You may buy the album early to gain immediate access to all the tracks, or wait until December 24 when it will be available for free. Also consider subscribing to my YouTube channel to be notified when I publish future tracks (and episodes of my alleged game show PrimeTime Concentration). I hope you will support my music-related efforts as well as my puzzle-related ones!

MUSICAL WORD CHAIRS 2
The letters in these words are playing musical chairs; in each round, one letter gets dropped and the rest get rearranged. Write the clued 7-letter words in column A. Then drop one letter from each word and rearrange the rest to get a 6-letter word that goes in column B. Drop one more letter and rearrange what's left to get a 5-letter word to write in column C. The letters thus dropped, reading down the leftmost column and then the rightmost column, will spell a song title. The words in column C are clued in order, but you must determine where the words go in the other columns.
COLUMN A
* Team Fortress 2 class that can perform a rocket jump
* Firearm with a long barrel
* Sportswear designer Kors
* Do over and over and over, as programming instructions
* Kirk of Growing Pains

* Patron Puzzle #7, which will be delivered exclusively to Patreon supporters ($5 or more per month), is a Pathfinder. Words snake around the grid horizontally and vertically; you're given the starting position and direction for each word, but the rest is up for you to determine. Every letter is used in two words; there are 54 words in all.
* Patreon supporters ($5 or more per month) will also receive issue #1 of Fox & Badger Magazine, which combines three of my favorite things: puzzles, Comic Sans, and clip art. A six-puzzle meta, "For Inner Peace", leads to a song title as its final answer. How frequent will this magazine be? It depends on how creative I'm feeling and what kind of feedback I get.

SECTION SIX 7

This puzzle's grid has six rings and six sections. Each ring contains a series of words placed end to end, reading either clockwise or counterclockwise; all the words in a given ring will read in the same direction. Ring 1 (the outer ring) contains six answers that read clockwise; the starting spaces are numbered in the grid. Clues for the answers in the remaining rings are given in order, but their starting points and direction are for you to determine. The sections (separated by the heavy lines radiating from the center) will help you place the inner rings: in a given section, each ring segment contains all but one of the letters in the next segment outward. In other words, a section's outermost segment contains six letters; the next segment inward contains five of those six letters in some order; and so on, until only one of the original six letters remains.

Arrange the letters in the six starred spaces to form the final answer.

Ring 1
1 ____ on the Mount
2 Like some skates: hyph.
3 Jewelry for many hip-hop artists
4 Matt of The Bourne Identity
5 Famous outlaw Barrow
6 Ulaanbaatar is its capital

Ring 2
* Company associated with Bibendum
* Word before "mistaken", sometimes
* ____ sense
* Theodor of kiddie lit fame
* Veggie on a pizza, perhaps

Ring 3
* Lohan of 1998's The Parent Trap
* Eau de ____
* Somber and serious
* 2007 film featuring the song "Falling Slowly"

Ring 4
* Foreigner hit: 3 wds.
* Kissing disease, briefly
* Sierra ____

Ring 5
* Building that's a feature of many a Western
* It depicts Queen Elizabeth II

Ring 6
