Themed #10: On What Grounds?

· By Raspberrygoop · Published 12 days ago

Constructor's Note: First puzzle of 2023. Did everyone have a good holiday period? This is an early theme I experimented with last year but I didn't develop it fully until last week. Enjoy!

      Listen to me when I tell you that I STRUGGLED with this guy. The top right corner really got me, as well as 38d/39d!
      • Raspberrygoop constructor · 12 days ago
        Not my best fill, I'm afraid. I liked pretty much all the set words except for 38D
        38D NEFDining table item shaped like a ship
        and 39D
        39D GAITom yum ___ (Thai soup dish)
        , and it took a while to fit the themers in the middle, so I ended up just keeping the bad words, hoping that the good words made up for it :'(

          They did make up for it and honestly, thanks for 38D
          38D NEFDining table item shaped like a ship
          because I learned something interesting
