    Nice one Jeff! Still gotta think on the meta 🤔

      Fun one! I got the meta but the link just sends me back to the puzzle.
      • Mike D 🤓7:45 · 4 months ago
        It is actually a different puzzle - click Begin Puzzle on it and you'll see. @JeffPrug came up with this neat trick of using a second puzzle as the meta submission mechanism until Crosshare adds support for that.

          Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks to Mike D for already explaining, but sorry that the links just kept bouncing you back and forth, I hopefully clarified the instructions on the answer puzzle.
