              Sorry, but I didn't understand most of this puzzle. YIKES I feel really dumb!!!
              • Hoyt Arcane constructor · 10 months ago
                Some of the squares require HEART going down and then ARROW going across. Thus, an ARROW going through the HEART. Hope that helped!
              • Duncan Lyle 🤓14:56 · 10 months ago
                Fantastic theme! It took me right up until almost the very end to realize it was a bi-directional rebus. I get your note about solving on paper; it would've been fun to just draw a little heart with an arrow through it in each box!
                • Aaron 🤓4:01 · 10 months ago
                  Excellent puzzle! I love it when a rebus means something different in the across and down directions.

                    Glad you enjoyed!
                  • Matt Forest 19:43 · 10 months ago
                    How should I have entered the rebus to avoid using "reveal"? I knew it was arrow/heart... I guess that's what counts.
                    • Hoyt Arcane constructor · 9 months ago
                      It is! But to answer your question: I should have it set to where you can put either HEART or ARROW into each of the rebus squares.

                      Too clever for me this morning, ha! What a fun use of rebuses!
                      • Hoyt Arcane constructor · 9 months ago
                        Glad you liked it!

                        I'm going down the list for voting and this is probably the strongest use of theme so far. Good job!
