    Thank you so much for this season of Pandora's Blocks. You've given me lots of Sunday smiles. Have a great summer!

      Another tricky and a terrific season of puzzles.

          Great work Will! Sunday’s have become the highlight of my week.

            Very nice! I almost gave up on the meta but gave it another look this morning and... success 🎊. Thanks so much for another awesome season - already looking forward to the next!

                The theme answers are solidly in my wheelhouse but I couldn't get any further with it. I submitted a five-letter guess just to get it over with. 🙄
                • Caroline 🤓8:58 · 9 days ago
                  I also couldn't figure out the connection between the theme answers and the correct solution. Is it something to do with 49A
                  49A MELBScary Spice
                  ? Otherwise I'm drawing a blank (heh).
