    STU Only Product on August 4th!

    Hey all you STUs! Tomorrow (August 4th) is your lucky day… We’ll be launching an STU only product tomorrow at around 4:00 p.m. MST that only STUs will be able to participate in. For those of you who don’t know what an STU is, it is a “Super Tanga User” and these are the folks who have bought way too much stuff on Tanga and have solved way too many puzzles! You too can become an STU be throwing us your cold hard cash :-)

    Thanks for your loyal and loving support!

    Your friend in Trash,
    TangaMonkey

    Hypercrosslessness explained

    There are some organizational changes taking place at Tanga that affect Daily Fun. One of the short term casualties is the daily Hypercross puzzle. There are lots of Hypercross puzzles in the archives if you haven’t done them all.

    The Tanga Times will also not run every day.

    The One Word Warmup and One Word Wonder puzzles will continue to appear daily.

    Sorry for the chaos!

    Sorry for things being late/absent tonight.

    Aaron was temporarily transported to a parallel universe.

    The parallel universe is named for a cartoon character.

    First to name this character gets 15

    The name starts with a T

    How about some clues for words using the following format:

    Clue – Word Length – Scrabble Value (tile total)

    For example

    Family destination – 3 – 12

    ftp 15 for the answer to this one

    Speedy Tanga!

    You might’ve noticed the occasional odd glitch today while using Tanga. But, I think I’m done tinkering with the hamsters that type up each page on this website and send it to you guys.

    So, is the site loading snappily for everyone?

    Like ACE for example.

    this one is more of an actual puzzle.

    here is a collection of rebuses with charming art.

    And speaking of art, let’s have an art contest. 40 points to the winner and 20 points to the runner up.

    Do a piece of art on an ace. That’s right. Draw on the ace from a deck of cards. Leave the card back alone and it won’t make the deck unusable. The judge will be Norm, the dealer at the poker club frequented by Aaron and other Maine underworld characters.

    clue: bird home

    answer: nest

    notice anything?

    all three words have the same length.

    who can think of some?

    the two word clue needs to be pretty definitive.

    how about some with longer words?

    For example “Hidden in Hidden Version” ftp15

    or “Bo’s not confused” ftp 15

    Also, if you have ideas for fun places to point Tanga Times readers to, email Aaron at aaron@tanga.com. If your idea is used in the Tanga Times you won’t be sorry.

    Here’s yesterday’s winner

    which is also the basis for our second coloring contest!

    (It was Kete’s immediate favorite and she didn’t even see the puzzle in it)

    Color this image in and post your colored version on this blog before tomorrow’s Tanga Times goes to print.

    40 tp to the winner, who will be chosen this time by Aaron’s neighbor, Doctor Dugan. The funny thing is he’s not a doctor. His first name is Doctor! He makes his living designing pet clothing and accessories. His specialty is reptiles. Go figure.

    The runner up will get 20 TP.

    Oh and here’s yesterday’s runner up

    Site Redesign

    In preparation for our super secret project, we’re spending some time on redesigning this little website.

    Here’s your chance to give us feedback on stuff you think we could improve. What’s not clear? What’s hard to use? What is butt ugly?

    Thanks for your patience with our recent difficulties.

    The words FLOW and LOWER can intersect to make the word FLOWER

    So you could clue the word FLOWER as follows:

    Move as a liquid – Closer to the ground – [overlap 3]

    Can people find more overlappers?

    The reward for a published puzzle just went up from 20 to 50 points.

    Coloring contest winners as chosen by Kate:

    1st place goes to spamwise

    The runner up is kswitz

    Kate says it was a tough choice, especially considering the high quality pandering and efforts such as this.

    Who can think of common two word expressions where both words start with the same two letters?

    Like French Fries, for example.

    I can think of one that’s a football play. FTP 15

    Gotta use the Times to plug the Tanga Tee Shirt Design Contest

    Between now and July 14 we hope one of you comes up with something awesome for our first shirt. Otherwise we’ll have to use Jeremy’s family Christmas photo…

    Oh and what material has the inside of a Shakespeare protagonist? FTP 15
