Crunchword

By Sonalee RauPublished 9 days ago

Constructor's Note: Coming soon to 15 states possibly near you, the CICADAS are back after a 17-year quarantine! This puzzle is in their honor. Originally designed (a bit late -- fully my bad) for 7xwords. Pls enjoy this puzzle candied or deep-fried. More stuff at twitter.com/sonamalr 馃
