    There are 8 clues that include a capital city in parentheses. The answer to each such clue is an anagram of that capital's country but with one letter missing (e.g. PALE
    1A PALEWan (Kathmandu)
    > NEPAL). Collect the 8 missing letters and unscramble them to find the solution: SLOVENIA

      Very nice - a fun solve and a meta with a very nice click! Thanks for sharing it!

        Very nice puzzle! The meta didn't solve quite as I thought it would, but very well smooth and very well done.
        • JeffPrug 12:04 · 2 months ago
          Nice meta and clever title!
          • Joah 🤓11:53 · 2 months ago
            Great meta! I had to google the anagram because I came up with "save lion" but I got there in the end!
