When I do these grids with four 7×7 quadrants, my goal is to have ideally at least three, minimum two snappy entries in each quadrant. I have definitely fulfilled that goal in this grid. You often see constructors go for pangrams in grids like these, but I have never been one to shoot for that. Given a choice that doesn’t affect fill adversely, I will always go for the more unusual letter, but I will never force an unusual letter into a grid just for the sake of having an unusual letter or having a pangram.

As always, I’d like to know, folks… comment is welcome! Come say hello! What did you like? What could I do better?

As always, share this link! Pass it around! New puzzle on Friday!

  1. Ah. I came to say you forgot to change the clue for INGRESS, which you obviously swapped out. Also, if 60A is a Boston thing, I’ve never heard it in the plural. Other than that, a PISSAH puzzle, indeed.


  2. Cool – I thought that might be the case, but it wouldn’t be the first clue of yours that I couldn’t figure out even after solving…
