Need a hug?

· By bice · Published 10 months ago

Constructor's Note: Once you've finished The X's aren't anything, just a way to highlight the heart of hugs, which didn't show up as clearly as I'd hoped

    Cute grid! I didn't notice until the Xs started flashing
    • Mike D 🤓3:48 · 10 months ago
      Fun solve! I like how you used the flashing Xs to highlight the heart, too - I hadn't noticed it until then 😊
      • bice constructor · 10 months ago
        Yeah, they looked really obvious when they were the only letters in the grid but then I had to, you know, make it a crossword.

                  Sneaky little subtle grid art! Fun puzzle.

                    I thought I was solving a themeless for a second and then it hit me. Wonderful use of grid art with a fun reveal at the end.
