There's nothing like a puzzle or game to break up a blockage in your creative output. The first is called "Places, Please." The name is from the Pennypress puzzle magazine I subscribe. Instructions are included with the JPEG of the diagram. The second is a cryptoquote for you solving enjoyment. It is also in JPEG format. If you find yourself stumped and want the answers then email me at phalenbbs_at_phalensfolly.com (remember to substitute _at_ for @) and I'll happy to send them to you. Oh yeah, if you wish to complete these puzzles then you will have to print them out. Since I'm not a programmer so I figured this was the easiest way to make them available.
