Twin Minis #4 (Easier version)

· By SporcleMirror · Published 17 days ago

Constructor's Note: You'll have to figure out which clue in each pair goes in which mini. The order of the two minis doesn't matter.
If you want to familiarize yourself with the concept of a twin mini, try this. If you feel like you've mastered them after just three installments in the series, see how you do in the (very) hard version of the puzzle.

    I was aware that Twin Minis #4 would be hard. I decided to get pretty wacky with the cluing. But now I have to ask @kieranjboyd if he thinks that any parts of the hard version are straight up unfair.
