The first thing you’ll see when you open this grid, probably, is the stack in the middle (well, actually, it’ll almost certainly be the first thing, since I mentioned it), but the three 15-letter “spines” intersecting the stack were not originally planned. In fact, I was pretty far into the construction of this grid before I even considered any 15s, never mind three of them. Originally, I had two six-block “pyramids” on the left and right sides to block out any vertical 15s, until I considered the letter patterns to see if any 15s would fit. Luckily, there were a couple of good options (and you usually only need one) for each fifteen, and hence I opened it up. That’s why it’s a 68 — with the stack in the middle and the three fifteens running down the grid, 68 was pretty much the highest I could go.
