Midi - On Edge

· By Aaron · Published 23 days ago

Constructor's Note: A quick mini intended as my take on a classic theme that ballooned to a more serious 11x11 puzzle after a few revisions. Medium-challenging difficulty.

      Fun puzzle! Should the clue for 38A
      38A FIXEPrix____ (phrase on a Michelin-starred restaurant menu)
      be the other way round? Prix __ (phrase on a Michelin-starred restaurant menu)?
      • Aaron constructor · 22 days ago
        Yes, thanks for the correction!
      • Hoyt Arcane 🤓6:33 · 22 days ago

            tried without revealing, but could not... I did not understand that a REBUS could be longer than 2 letters, nor that the circle indicates a REBUS. It is clever that the corners are the word "corner".
