Remember how this blog's titled “A Cleverly-Titled Logic Puzzle Blog” even though the author doesn't post logic puzzles anymore? Looks like he's jumped the shark a second time: a “Wordy Wednesday” puzzle without words, not even instructions! This is quickly becoming “MIT Mystery Hunt Wednesday”. . . .
The answer is a single 5-letter word.

16 tracks are now available from my upcoming album Dork Is Yes!. There is still time to buy the album early if you're desperate to hear the other 8 tracks before anyone else, but when the album drops on December 24, it will be a completely free download. Enjoy these 24 music tracks composed using Wario Ware DIY!

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.

* There are two instances of the letter V in the grid. (Spoiler alert!)

Until next time, yappy solving!
