I’m noticing that I’ve been throwing in little references, and even including seeds, that are influenced by my infant son Nathan. That explains 12-Down. After I threw in my crossing grid spanners, like I like to do, and I got my ultimate black square structure, 12-Down was a definite for me. We’re not even close to there yet with Nathan, and I don’t want to jump ahead in his life right now, but it still comes to mind.


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!

  1. Just another 4.5 star Croce freestyle – I remain in the fan camp, hoping that someday someone starts blogging Tim’s puzzles. I exclude myself, as I don’t seem to be able to keep to a schedule (that’s why this is two weeks late). I would never miss a Croce puzzle though. Thanks a bunch Tim!

    On re-reading my grid, this deserves five stars – so smooth, so many puzzling moments, with a final “of course!” moment. And no google lookups.
