I had a couple of 16-letter entries burning a hole in my seed list, so I changed up my grid size a bit. I squeezed it in to 16×14, which has one square less than a 15×15… so that means you aren’t missing out on much crossword real estate. That translated to a lot of 4-letter entries (mainly because 14 squares means three columns of four letters separated by two black squares).


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!
