Every week, the NYT Sunday Magazine publishes a large crossword and one or more variety puzzles. Acrostics alternate weeks with cryptics and various other special puzzles.
There is some brilliant work here that I want to organize and surface for others to see. Many of the best clues have been in acrostics or other variety puzzles.
Acrostics are included back to mid-1999. Other puzzles are here if they look enough like standard crosswords to be published in Across Lite format. That includes cryptic, diagramless, and panda (Puns and Anagram) puzzles, as well as a small number of vowelless and other crosswords.
Split Decisions have no clues. Spirals have clues which could be tracked but Across Lite doesn't support them.
Mostly yes. Finder searches can show Variety results separately.
No. As explained earlier, many variety types are not included at all. For those I do include, I rely mostly on the puzzle archives at the NYT Crossword page. Variety puzzles haven't been curated with the same care as the daily puzzles, so there are gaps.
