      Woo! Very nice! The only thing I found tricky is that the first two themers I got (IMAGINARY
      55A IMAGINARYWith 57-Across, invisible playmate
      END
      57A END(See 55-Across)
      and ULTIMATE
      27A ULTIMATEWith 29-Across, sport that was originally played with a Wham-O Master disc
      SBEE
      29A SBEE(See 27-Across)
      ) had the FRI as a word beginning so it took me a while to realize the other themers didn't follow that rule. Once I did, though, it was a breeze 😊

        Thanks Mike!

          Thanks for the input!

          Incredibly clean fill and I enjoyed the look into the construction process (specifically the look into how Crossfire's features helped with the grid as I am looking into buying construction software). Enjoyed seeing Tuesday fill with a Thursday theme.
          • Hoyt Arcane constructor · 6 months ago
            Glad I could offer some helpful insight. Also thanks for letting me know how difficult you found it; for themes like this I aim for tricky clues combined with a few gimmes here and there.

            Love the mechanics of this puzzle.

            Really well done. Professional level quality. I thought having NUG
            45D NUGBit of weed
            as an answer was fine. I'm all for adding more short words to the crossword Lexicon. It took me 0.001 seconds to come up 'African Queen' as an answer, but it took me a while to connect the dots and realized that I forgot the 'the'.
