Dual triple stacks! It’s been a while since I’ve done that. And there’s a reason I don’t do them too often… they’re hard to build! Once the stacks are in, it’s not so bad to build the rest of the grid, since the top and bottom are as wide open as you can get them, but they’re a pain to get started. Not only that, I once submitted a (rejected) triple stack grid to the times (for various reasons, I wouldn’t probably put it here) that had JAZZ SAXOPHONIST at 1-Across. Talk about artificially handicapping yourself…


Thanks so much to all who’ve left a tip! It’s much appreciated, believe me.


Thanks as always to the test solvers for their input.


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