    Fun!
    • dplass 🤓9:52 · about 1 month ago
      Ah, I see it now. Excellent. I wouldn't have gotten it if Crosshare allowed one guess only lol
      • dplass 🤓9:52 · about 1 month ago
        Now to back solve for the metanism...
        • Byron 🤓12:07 · about 1 month ago
          The slight asymmetry between EYE
          35A EYE"___ of the Tiger" (Survivor hit)
          and BUSY
          49A BUSYOccupied
          helped me.
          • DIS 🤓12:31 · about 1 month ago
            Me too, since the Y could have been a black square with no other changes.
            • Pandora's Blocks Weekly Meta Crossword constructor · about 1 month ago
              I was hoping that would help! Glad it worked out :)
          • Hector 4s · about 1 month ago
            Very elegant, including the title.
          • KathleenTM 🤓27:32 · about 1 month ago
            Phew that was hard but great!
            • DIS 🤓12:31 · about 1 month ago

                Much fun
                • Laura M 🤓45:18 · about 1 month ago
                  Really clever!
                  • bodhipepper 3s · about 1 month ago
                    Nice puzzle! Really clean, solid click.
                    • Louis D 2s · about 1 month ago
                      Nice one! That could have been really challenging (but doable and really rewarding if you figured it out) without the circled letters.
                      • Cindy Heisler 2s · about 1 month ago
                        Very nice. Thanks, Will. The numbers had me stumped for a while.
                        • woozy 13:58 · 30 days ago
                          I don't get the numbers... or the title.
                          • woozy 13:58 · 30 days ago
                            Oh... I get the numbers. But still don't get the title.
                          • THC 🤓4:15 · about 1 month ago
                            Not sure why this one took me so long. Like a lot of these, it’s a “hand in the face” once you see it!
