I love this. I hope we get more interviews with more players, and more stories from the past. The Friendship Points part and the story about old "Dueling Raids" were especially nice. The puzzle is good too, lets us participate.
I have only one suggestion. You could come up with a useful but not overpowered single item that is given to us every time we participate (instead of the spinach). You can make it upgradeable, so that when we participate 1/3/9/27/... times, we could keep upgrading it and get more use out of it. Could be something as simple as a single item that gives "Product Drop Chance", and it doesn't really matter. The important thing is, it will keep people coming, it won't be too powerful, and it won't be something that we use once and disappears. Could also make it auctionable to make it useful to even people that won't use it themselves.
Fantastic work, especially to those who edited and put in the effort to run the newspaper. I look forward to seeing more editions in the near future. I can think of a few people I'd love to see interviewed as a legend of the game, so will be keeping my eyes peeled on that!
