Puzzle #55: “Apple Updates”
Writing this all now as a placeholder, because I want to revisit this post at some point and discuss the solution(s) of last week’s brain-busting duo of puzzles. For now, here is a 17×17, low word count grid that turned out surprisingly smooth. The less theme space you have to deal with, the more breathing room there is for some colorful stuff! Really wanted to make all four corners shine with their limited constraints: 1A (simply because it’s there at 1A), 14D, 44D, and 56D were my faves of the bunch. The crossing of 53D, 68A, and 80A was kinda cool too…surprised it worked out. Anyway, I’ll be back in a bit, but for now, enjoy!
