Shinteki’s Puzzle of the Month will make its 2016 debut today (there was a one-week delay to accommodate the MIT Mystery Hunt; future puzzles will be released on the 15th of the month as usual). The January-June puzzles will feature a series of guest constructors, and the July-December puzzles will be authored by Mark Halpin. We will once again be offering prizes this year, so set up an account if you don’t have one already. Good luck, and happy solving!
