Mini-themeless #2



LitSoft embedded

9×9, 26 words, 6 tiny blocks. This is the equivalent of, like, a 52 word 15×15. I think. Badass. I think.

I learned about the “runt puz” concept through Rex’s blog comments section and found the little niblets to be wonderful and quite difficult. Check them out here and try your luck. I wouldn’t call this or the previous mini-themeless a runt puz, but more like a puzzle going through its awkward phase.

Even though the real estate is limited and precious, there is still some unsavory fill– including the second time a word list word turns out not to be a word but we think it’s a word until we find out it’s not a word– cough7Dcough.

Anyway, Brayden and I hope you enjoy this little guy!

      Thanks for solving! I didn’t think twice about the spelling and when we were cluing Brayden pointed out it wasn’t correct. Luckily I don’t have a problem being silly, especially in a mini 🙂

    I was utterly handicapped by not knowing 13A, had huge trouble with the northeast until i caved in and asked for the answer. But 11A makes up for it and more.

      It can save your life AND puzzle! Yeah I’ll admit to being like “meh, people watch Game of Thrones so okaaaay…” Rest assured chagrin happened.
