The third contest puzzle of 2014 is now published – you can find it here. The meta for this puzzle is a band formed in the ’90s. Enter your solution to the meta below before 11pm ET Sunday, March 9. There is also room to rate the puzzle and/or leave a comment.
Extra challenge: I had to add the “formed in the ’90s” qualifier to eliminate a possible alternative (though less good) meta answer. If you figure out that answer, send it as a comment in the box below.
As a reminder, the 2014 contest once again features a mega-meta, hidden in the 12 monthly puzzles. You can enter your solution to the mega-meta in the box at the right. Solvers who send in the correct answer to the mega-meta before the final puzzle get lots of bonus points, as explained in the Contest Rules. Because the reward is so large for getting the mega-meta before the final puzzle, there may be some tricks designed to throw you off the track. Consider yourself warned.
Thanks for playing!
