So don’t be alarmed by the weird-looking PDF format for this one. Last time I did that, I had to be coy, because I didn’t want to reveal that I was in the hospital waiting for our son to be born (and because that particular grid had a theme about my son’s birth!). Much more innocuous reason this time.

As is usual for these kinds of grids, I shaped the blocks to fit the first corner I built, and it ended up being a pain in the neck for me in the symmetrically opposite corner. It looks innocent enough, but that bottom right was, for some reason, tougher than I thought it would be. It always seemed that there was one little letter combination each time that just didn’t work out.


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. Another really good one! had to use Google 3 times (26D, 24A, and 17A), but in my mind that’s not a shortcoming, except in my knowledge.

    But! I don’t understand 32A. How does RUE equal
