I’ve been asked about when I was going to put up another one of these Split Decisions Two Ways grids. So, lucky for those who asked, I like constructing these… so here’s another one! (If you’re not familiar with these, or, by some chance, the original Split Decisions format, go through my post history of these at this link.) It’s just a pencil, paper, and a lot of erasures and write-overs to construct these things. The main impetus for how these grids get expanded, pair by pair, from the central answer is twofold: one, to make certain that it’s a unique overall solution, and two, to add more letters to certain word pairs to give the solvers a little nudge. (I bet you’re not used to my giving you a nudge in any puzzle I write!)

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.

1. Well … It took 51 hours, 13 minutes, and 36 seconds, but I finally finished the thing … and I’m a little hungry … 😜.

(To be honest, I did do a few other things during that time. I have to leave puzzles like this beside my chair and look at them for a few minutes at a time. Enjoyable, nonetheless … 🤪.)

1. Haha, I’m amazed you timed this down to the second, and I hope one of the “few other things” was sleeping!
