Smoke 'Em If You Got 'Em

Well, it's been two weeks since I last posted a puzzle. I've got one almost ready to go, I just have to finish cluing it.

In the mean time, I'll post one that's been sitting around for a while that I've been saving for just this type of occassion. It's not the best of theme ideas, that's why I've been sitting on it for a couple of months. Well, that and the answer at 37-Down is rediculous. But I actually kinda like it.


Better puzzle coming reasonably soonly.

Square Deal

This puzzle went through so many re-writes that I can probably post three versions with entirely different grids, save for the seed entries.

Then again, the reason it went through so many revisions is that I wasn't satisfied with elements of each re-write. So, here's the final version, just completed Monday night.

By the way, BEQ is having a contest. Solve his Friday puzzle, send him the answer the question that the solution poses and win a copy of his latest book, Diagramless Crosswords. Woo hoo!

In the meantime...


About that unchecked square in the center: When I was writing the clues, I didn't know whether or not I had to write a clue for it, so I simply clued it as "Crossword puzzle square". Turns out I had one too many clues in the file, so out it went. Don't worry about it though, it'll make sense.
