If I could make a whole book of these Wordominoes, and I had the time to do this, I definitely would. As I say, I think, on every one of these posts (check out the past posts if you’re unfamiliar with these), I have so much fun constructing these. I don’t really like to toot my own horn, but I am rather proud of coming up with this puzzle form. If you’re a crossword constructor, or an aspiring one, I am gently urging you to construct one of these. I’m very curious about a few things here — curious what you would all come up with, curious what you think of the construction process, curious what your process would even be. Heck, I’m curious what the solving process would be myself, without knowing the solution beforehand. I have to dial my clue difficulty down a bit here — I’d estimate somewhere around hard Wednesday/easy Thursday New York Times level — because part of the puzzle is orienting the words and finding out which row and which column belongs where. I can’t make it unfair, you know.


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!
