Puzzle #30: “AC-Pun-T”
Difficulty: Easy theme, medium fill
Good morning, solvers!
Welcome back…I can’t believe it’s been 30 weeks since this has all begun, and it’s still just the beginning! As a constructor, this blog has been such a great way for me to develop my skills, as I get so much practice with brainstorming themes, optimizing quality fill, and freshening clues for ordinary entries. Obviously, nothing here is perfect, and each puzzle can be considered more “in beta” when published for your solving enjoyment, but I hope that those of you who solve here regularly have been able to see progress in my construction. I know I have, to some extent!
Anyway, I am too pumped for this weekend’s ACPT! Looking forward to seeing many familiar faces that share my passion, and getting very excited to make new friends from all sorts of backgrounds! For those of you that are attending, I’d really love to meet you in person…so if you see a young, short guy with a look of fascination etched on his face, come say hi! I may very well have a puzzle to hand out 🙂
Without further ado, check out today’s puzzle, made in honor of the upcoming event! While the theme may be a bit stretchy in terms of puns, I figured it’d still be worth it. Let me know what you think, and I look forward to hearing from you, if not seeing you as well!
