I don’t like intersecting long triple stacks with other long triple stacks — it’s hard to do and doesn’t often come out well. So here I intersected double stacks with double stacks. It has a funky shape to it, and it interlaces a lot of long entries, not many of which were preplanted. It’s funny, I was struggling for a nine-letter entry with a certain pattern (two letters fixed), and, amazingly, I overheard a coworker say something in a conversation I wasn’t even involved in that, right, then and there, I figured out would fit. The universe works in mysterious ways.


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 Friday!
