Puzzle #25 Solution

RG2015.25 Hardest/Harder - Solution

RG2015.25 Easier/Easiest - Solution

B2 was the seed here, just because it's such an odd term and I came up with a good attendant clue for it. The bottom rows were a bear to complete, as I recall. Some weeks you have it easier than others. This one was memorably a struggle, and I gave in even after acknowledging a dupe of sorts at the K1 entry and the first medium bloom in intersects. I'm usually pickier about disallowing dupes, but considering I've never gotten a piece of hate mail pointing one out (there was a TELL dupe in the northern regions in this same puzzle, too), I think it's further down the scale of priorities than I may have once perceived.

  1. Nice puzzle. I had a hard time with the starts of I and J -- I had 'micro' in I and didn't know J. I had not heard of the expression for the end of C but I still got it easily.

  2. Andrew,

    Congrats on the scoring the weekly WSJ puzzle. I make take that back once I start trying to solve it. The comments there seem to indicate it's not that easy.

    Cheers once again.
