If you subscribe to the AllEars® Weekly Newsletter, you’ll know that we run a little game called the Mousy Mindboggler. Sometimes it’s a word game, sometimes it’s a riddle, sometimes it’s some other brain-teasing challenge — but it’s always fun!
Once each month, in the AllEars® Bits and Bites issue, our friend James Dezern (known as “dzneynut” around several Disney discussion forums) supplies us with a puzzle of his own design.
Around the middle of each month, James Shares the Magic in another way — by posting an all-new puzzle here in this AllEars.Net Guest Blog. The subject of the puzzle will vary, and James will award the winner of the challenge a collectible Disney pin!
This month, James writes:
“Here’s the answer key to the June Mid-Month Mousy Mindboggler crossword:
“There were just 79 correct responses from folks who knew that the name of the group of Disney classic characters that includes Daisy is the Sensational Six. The Fab 5 usually refers to the five classic characters, not including Daisy: Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Goofy and Donald.
“The winner of a Chip & Dale pin was Sue F. of Marlton, NJ. Thanks to Sue, and everyone, for playing!
“Continuing this month with the classic Disney character theme, we take a look at Chip & Dale. Here’s the link to the crossword:
“These puzzles are getting more and more difficult to create, so I feel change coming on… Stay tuned!
“The object is, as always, to have fun, but if you’d like a chance to win a Disney collectible pin, arrange the letters that are circled in the puzzle to come up with the answer to the bonus question, which relates to the puzzle theme. Send your resulting answer IN THE SUBJECT LINE OF AN EMAIL addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Send the bonus term or phrase no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on August 10, 2014. All correct answers will be entered into a random drawing, and the winner will be awarded a Disney pin. The answers and drawing winner will be posted in this Guest Blog, along with a new puzzle, in mid-July.
As always, James would love to hear any feedback, or any ideas for themes you’d like to see covered in future puzzles. Drop James a line at email@example.com.
