Only 58 entries in today's puzzle. That means obviously a couple things: nowhere to hide in each corner as they're all interlocking long answers. And, more importantly, only 58 clues for the ole' Biz Quig to write. Yes, clue writing is a crucial part of puzzlemaking, but sometimes I find the volume of them (70+ usually per daily-sized puzzle) can be a bit of a grind coming up with clues. So, every now and then, I give myself a break and make a really wide-open grid so as to ease up on one end of the creation. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it.
We're in the final stretch of the Diagramless Kickstarter. If you're one of those last-minute shoppers, now's your last chance to get some deals on BEQ bundles. Thanks to all who've signed up so far. Should be a fun run.
Share the puzzle. New one on Thursday.
