My Puzzle Goals

My Puzzle Fix is still in its infancy, but growth is in its future. Since it is also your puzzle fix, I'm asking for your input on which goals to pursue first. Here are some ideas:
  1. Javascript for online puzzle solving.
  2. User profile pages with statistics.
  3. More types of puzzles, eventually expanding to a daily crossword, sudoku/other logic puzzle, and variety puzzle.
  4. A message board.

Please comment below with your feedback!

Remember that the growth of My Puzzle Fix will be funded by advertising, which means the more hits the site gets, the faster these goals can be reached. Spread the word to your puzzle loving and/or easily bored friends! And don't forget to subscribe, if you haven't already.

#18 Brain teaser

This is a number-and-word game in which all non-trivial words are represented only by their first letter. Your job is to complete the phrases. For instance, the answer to "24 H in a D" is "24 hours in a day".

  1. 30 M in a H H
  2. 90 D in a Q
  3. 3 A in a T
  4. 14 L in a S
  5. 366 D in a L Y
  6. 7 U N in an O
  7. 8 P in the S S
  8. 10 D in a C
  9. 5 T on a F
  10. 9 M in a H P

This is a "best of" puzzle, meaning the player(s) with the most correct answers wins, similar to an open solution puzzle.
