An Efficient Midi

· By wisprabbit · Published 4 months ago

Constructor's Note: This is an entry for the Crosshare Midi Contest for January 2022. The theme is "2". But why have 2 when 1 will do? As such, I've processed all the theme answers in this midi to make them twice as efficient...

    Very nice! Loved the way you kind of reversed the theme.

    35A CIAOItalian salutation or valediction
    is Italian though, right?

      Thank you! You're right, I meant to put Italian but I got lost somewhere. Edited it. Thanks for pointing it out.

      Wow super cool that you put the theme all around the border!
      • wisprabbit constructor · 4 months ago
        Thank you! I spent a long time trying to get a midi with the theme running through rows like a normal themed crossword, but I'm still no good at fills and I found the midi size too tight to get a fill with okay words. Hats off to you and everyone else who can manage it! (sorry for the late reply!)
