Another instance where 70 worked out better than 72 for me. Obviously the opportunity to pare it down to 72 lay in splitting what’s now 6-Down and 30-Down, but it would have made the area above the bottom stack and under the middle very awkward with some not-so-nice entries. Also, you’ll get the rare “one helper square stacked on top of another” animal here — it helped both of those corners immensely. You’ll also see a sort-of dupe in this grid that I let go because it wasn’t worth tearing apart an area that I think came out pretty well.
As always, I’d like to know, folks… comment is welcome! Come say hello! What did you like? What could I do better?
