    Hahahahaha. Nice!
    • Raspberrygoop constructor · 2023-02-14T06:49:45.750Z
      Glad you enjoyed! Hopefully there was a good "aha" moment!

      So good - loved it! What a fun theme. :)

        Themes. For. Days.
        Glad you liked this one! I was delighted to find some good themers once I stumbled upon the theme.

        When it finally clicked... oh boy!
        • Raspberrygoop constructor · 2023-02-15T00:29:14.037Z
          Booyah! That's what I like to hear.

          That was fun. I actually figured out the theme pretty early (for me) because I was sure that 15A15A*Cricket equipment[-----] should be "BAT", and as soon as I filled in 11D11DCore area[-------], 12D12DInnocence (US spelling)[-------], and 16D16DCowgirl whoop[------], it clicked. Thank you!

            Nice one! I put the more obscure clues at the top, hoping that most Americans wouldn't be familiar with cricket to know for sure, then put the definitely-only-one-possible answer INLAY60A*Encanto" lyricist ___-Manuel Miranda[-----]/LIN at the bottom to help people piece it together before the revealer. Thanks for playing!

            That theme, so obvious once you get it but it took me forever!
            • Raspberrygoop constructor · 2023-02-16T07:05:23.291Z
              Thanks for playing Nick! I was very pleased when I realised this theme as viable.
