Usually, you'd be greeted to each Letters in Boxes challenge with a warm smile and an equally warm chocolate chip cookie. This week, however, we're telling you to get lost! We've got another batch of homegrown puzzles for you to tackle, all themed around mazes. In each grid, you'll find a way in and a way out, but how to get from one to the other is left for you to figure out.
In this edition of Letters In Boxes, Steve realizes how big of a nerd he is after basing an entire set of puzzles around a numerical pattern, while slipping in a reference to a British game show in the same paragraph. But you don't have to be a nerd to play our game, you've just got to dive into these cube-based puzzles and find the hidden words to win!
Accidents happen, right? This week, we were going to feature another fantastic set of Letters In Boxes puzzles, hot off the presses and ready for solving.

Perhaps you've been wandering through the endless corridors of this website and found a "game" that seemed to be little more than a picture of gibberish text in a grid. "Surely," you think, "there's got to be more than meets the eye here." And there is! You've stumbled upon Letters In Boxes, a (usually) weekly feature here on Jay Is Games. If you love a good word puzzle with some tricky twists tossed in, you'll want to keep an eye out for new editions. But if you're new to the game and looking for instructions to get started, here's a little guide to help you out.

Those pilgrims had it easy. They never had to deal with endless weeks of leftover turkey and mashed potatoes. For this week's Letters In Boxes, we bring you nothing but leftovers, with a series of puzzles written weeks ago, but left on the cutting room floor. It's more fun than you can shake a can of cranberry sauce at! (Though cranberry sauce is fun to shake.)
Four more puzzles to solve, four more answers to find, four more warm bagels served with strawberry cream cheese. Come on, you know you want it now. It's time once again for Letters In Boxes, a puzzle mini-series that could net you a handsome prize. (It's not a bagel with cream cheese.)

Each week we feature a series of puzzles called Letters In Boxes, but sometimes the letters in the boxes get a bit too much attention. Every once in a while, it's nice to think outside the box, get a bit of fresh air, and find a new perspective on the problems you're facing. This week, we celebrate the box-troverts with a challenge where everything you need to know to solve each puzzle is out of the grid.

No one ever said school would be easy. Running from one end of the building to another for your next class, stopping to grab a book along the way, dodging the bullies in the hallway... Oh, and the classes are pretty hard too! Math, science, geography, language... And the older you get, the more they frown on you using fingerpaints in art class! School ain't no cakewalk. For this Letters In Boxes challenge, you've got to go back to school, do a bit of research, and fix one student's silly slip-ups.
Next week is the Autumnal equinox. It's one of two days out of the year where the sun is directly above the equator, and (in theory, but not exactly) gives an equal amount of daylight and darkness.

In all of this week's puzzles, you've got to make look at both sides of the picture to find the winning answers.

This week, we're dedicating our Letters In Boxes challenge to an event that occurred on July 4th, this week's contest deadline. Many Americans mark this historical date by remembering spacious skies, amber waves of grain, and purple mountain majesties above fruited plains. Of course, we all know July 4th as the day we mourn the passing of Bob Ross, who taught us all how to paint beautiful landscapes in the comfort of our own homes.
In this week's Letters In Boxes challenge, your task is to tackle those puzzles from the outside in. Each puzzle is a "common" logic puzzle, although not necessarily one you might have seen before.

Which are exactly like motorcycle/hot dog sandwiches.
