My favorite puzzle subscription out of a whooooooole lot of puzzle subscriptions.  A short, elegant, perfect little puzzle experience.

Quick, affordable, and surprisingly fun… with an emphasis on the surprise.

The overall sense of cleverness that can be found in the boxed games is definitely present here, too. The puzzles are relatively varied, well-clued, and enjoyable.

I’m a fan of the Hincks Gazettes, but the January 2021 edition has been their best yet. If you’re tempted to start, I’d recommend getting the January 2021 issue first.

The Gazette is for anyone who likes wordplay and enjoys their puzzles with a side of silliness. It’s an hour of pure fun and it’s sure to put a smile on your face.

The people at Bluefish have created a whimsical little world that shines through even in this two-page puzzle adventure. The town of Hincksville seems like it would be a wonderful place to visit and I’m really looking forward to spending more time there in future installments.
