A Really Efficient Use of Space

鈼嗏梿By SirMrGuy Published 2023-07-14T16:35:22.492Z

Constructor's Note
This crossword has more letters and solutions than squares, both black and white. If that's not efficiency, I don't know what is. Based on my submission to the 5-23 midi contest.

            same!! 36-down and 9-down only let me put one answer and not the other, but had fun either way:)

            Damn this is so cool! Never even occurred to me that there would be 2^7 possible solutions 馃く鈥 I was trying to see if the circled letters spelled anything

              Great puzzle! Only complaints are that the clues for 34A and 41A should be singular instead of plural.

                neat. it was funny because i was working on one area and i thought, couldn't more than one answer work here? this is a pretty poor puzzle if i just have a 50-50 chance. and then that was on purpose :P
