The thing about symmetry in these grids is that, sure, it looks nice, but sometimes you have to do things in one part of the grid to make it work out and hope and pray that they also work on the other side. That’s what happened here. I built the two stacks of nine first, but I really had to open up the upper stack to make it work. I crossed my fingers that it would work for the bottom, which wasn’t a good feeling, but it fit together. I don’t usually have that many long entries going in one direction (10) in one grid, but it somehow worked.


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!
