                  • MamaEllen 12:46 · 28 days ago
                    Whew - fun puzzle after a rough weekend of Metas. It was just crunchy enough for me. Fun solve! - for a while I had LENINTRAILSITANION
                    • MARR71 4s · 28 days ago
                      Can't believe I solved this one without a hint! Very fun!
                      • hbxwords 🤓3:55 · 28 days ago
                        So clever!

                            • C64 9s · 28 days ago
                              I also did the LENIN thing but Will said "do the first thing you mentioned instead" when I asked for help.
                              • William D 🤓8:16 · 28 days ago
                                Great meta! Thanks! 🙏

                                  • JM 10:14 · 27 days ago
                                    The symmetry really helped. Great puzzle!
                                    • DIS 🤓8:16 · 26 days ago
                                      Great puzzle! Both steps were quite elegant.
                                      • Capn Rick 🤓12:48 · 26 days ago
                                        Challenging but fun! Thx Will!
                                        • Terpagator 9s · 26 days ago
                                          Great puzzle!
                                          • THC 🤓5:57 · 26 days ago
                                            Wow!
                                            • Burakodrama 4s · 26 days ago
                                              I had the first step very quickly, I had the right idea for a second step even more quickly but got stuck for a day or so for not knowing where to go next. I'd say complexity was above average (6/10?) for that ambiguity (unless I'm missing something). Good one overall!
