I wanted to seed a grid with an 11-letter entry, but I didn’t want any 11-stacks. Remind me never to do that again. It was a great challenge to make it work, because now, all of a sudden, I was dealing with multiple long entries spread out across the grid and intersecting my stacks in the corner. It was much more difficult than I had anticipated. It’s a lot easier to construct a grid with most of the long entries concentrated in stacks than scattered about. Mind you, it still came out like I wanted it to, but I had to get lucky in a couple spots.

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!
