The Point Puzzle is a weekly puzzle challenging listeners with word puzzles and logic puzzles. Every week a winner from the last week is selected from emailed answers and announced on air and a new puzzle is posed.
The puzzle airs on KPOV on “The Point” on Wednesday mornings between 9:00 am and 9:30 am and replays at 5pm just before Open Air.
Puzzle 203 & 204, week of Mar 27 & Apr3:
Games Magazine recently ran a rhyming contest for their readers and I thought it would be fun to give my listeners a chance as well. This is a two week challenge.
Send me two sentences with the same number of syllables. Every syllable in the first sentence rhymes with the corresponding syllable in the second sentence. Entries will be judged on how well both sentences make sense, length, humor, and creativity.
Here is a (short) example:
Sentence 1: I sold you beets.
Sentence 2: Why fold two sheets?
Send your answers by Saturday April 8th. Multiple entries are allowed.
