I had an 11-letter entry that I wanted to use as a seed, but I didn’t want yet another 11-stack-in-the-corners grid. Solution? Stagger some 11s stairstep-style in the middle. 30-Across was the seed, but I was pleasantly surprised that 33-Across, my secondary seed, actually worked stacked underneath it. Usually when you get two entries that you’re surprised can stack, the third entry below it ends up blah, but that wasn’t the case either.

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

Thanks as always to the test solvers for their input.

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

  1. I’ve always thought if I ever learned to construct and then made a themeless, I would try to do one with 30A in it. And there it is, and I didn’t even get it until close to the end.
