One of the things I really don’t like happening during a grid construction is being forced into using a 15-letter entry that I wasn’t really planning on using. 15s are usually the marquee entries… they’re the seed entries. The longest entries in a grid are generally the ones you want to put in first, because those are the biggest constraints. You don’t want to be limited by a couple of letters that already have to be in place. But (you know the common refrain, say it with me) it worked out in the end.


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!
