Any time you build a crossword with “pockets” like in the upper right and lower left, it makes it easier, of course, to build a grid since those little sections are cut off entirely from the rest of the grid. As a solver, however, I concede that I do appreciate grid flow and connectivity, since a solver is more likely to get stuck in a section with only “one way in”. That’s part of the tradeoff between ease of construction and the perspective of the solver, alas.


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!
