Venn Mini 1

· By JeffsPuzzles · Published 2023-02-08T12:42:32.143Z

Constructor's Note
Think of each half of the clue as a circle in a Venn Diagram. The slash asks you to consider what each circle has in common - where do they overlap? It might be a common component, a word used in both contexts but with different meanings, a name, or some other shared trait. An explanation of the answers is on my JeffsPuzzles web site. I haven't seen something like this before - let me know what you think (I've got several more lined up for upcoming Wednesdays).

    Tough one since all the commonalities are different aspects. I liked it!

      Very cool!

        Great concept! 5A5ARanch dressing?/Hidden Valley, e.g.[-----] is super clever

              Cool! It's like you've leaned into and distilled the "Something blah ... or blah" clue format. I dig it!

                Nice! It's very promising. I liked 6A6ABlue Bayou/The Exorcist[-----] the best.

                  Super fun; I hope this catches on. Sorta likea cryptic, but not as... cryptic?

                    Wicked cool!
