Wintry Mix

By Zachary Hollback · Published 5 months ago

First puzzle on Crosshare! This isn’t a stellar puzzle; more of a test of Crosshare’s platform. I made this for the Madison Arts Barn in CT and changed some clues here for a non-youth audience. I’m pleased with how it turned out. Hope you like it!
