As we’ve reported before, our good friends over at Google are starting up a daily puzzle challenge. Each day’s puzzle will task your googling skills a little more, leading you to Google mastery. And much to our enjoyment, they’ve decided to share the puzzles with us at GeekDad (hmm… Google a Day? GD? GeekDad?), so each morning at 12:01am ET you’ll see a new puzzle, and the previous day’s answer (in invisitext) posted here. SPOILER WARNING: As a test, we’re going to leave the comments on so people can work together to find the answer. As such, if you want to figure it out all by yourself, DON’T READ THE COMMENTS! Also, with the knowledge that because others may publish their answers before you do, if you want to be able to search for information without accidentally seeing the answer somewhere, you can use the Google-a-Day site’s search tool, which will automatically filter out published answers, to give you a spoiler-free experience. And now, without further ado… TODAY’S PUZZLE:
I am the tragic child of the son of a glove maker. In one of my works, five people die by suicide and in another the title character and 13 others are killed. Who am I?
YESTERDAY’S ANSWER (HIGHLIGHT TO SEE):
Search [son of a glove maker]. Search [Titus Cornelius] and find he was a freed African slave living in New Jersey who fought on the Loyalist side during the American Revolution. Search [American Revolution king] to discover that King George III was king of Great Britain at the time.
