I had a few 16s burning a hole in my seed list, so I figured now is that time for another 16×15. With that comes a whole different set of challenges — it’s a whole other column, so it’s 16 more squares, but I have to keep it at 72 or under still. Since it’s impossible (I’m pretty sure?) to have an even number of entries with this shape, the max has to be 71. So 16 more squares and one less entry makes for a pretty wide open grid by necessity, though it doesn’t sound like much. It isn’t one I’d like to take on every week, but it’s a fun challenge for me once in a while.


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 Friday!
