Double Plusword #2

β—† Β· By SylveonSoulmate Β· Published 2024-01-23T10:38:29.094Z

Constructor's Note
Inspired by The Telegraph's Plusword. The bottom and rightmost rows are Wordle answers. After completing the crossword, use the shaded letters to solve it. To solve the bottom row, read the clues horizontally. To solve the rightmost row, read the clues vertically.
Thanks for solving my puzzles! Any feedback is appreciated.

    Interesting format as always! Got stumped for a while because I thought the words were going to be anagrams of each other like the first one haha.

      Maybe I should add additional clarification that the words are independent of each other and only depend on the Wordle grid.

        I got caught up on this too - definitely worth adding to the instructions. 😊

        Oh I see, this time not all 5 letters are given so the words do not need to be anagrams. Thanks for the feedback!

        Nice, actually solved it! how do you make those yellow and green squares?
        • pythoncodingveryfun constructorΒ Β·Β 2024-01-23T23:53:17.038Z
          I changed the shading to squares, and in the clues used emojis for the yellow and green distinction.

            very cool! lucky that i went for the vertical entry first here, i think that helped me think of the horizontal one :)

              With both of the pluswords..... so many possibilites, especially 11A.

                Did you consider that the other letters are white (i.e. not in the Plusword)? If so, I have verified that there should only be 1 solution each.

                  Oh yes. I've enjoyed doing these. I'm quite good at Wordle. That's why finding a word that fit 11A was so tough. The double E at the end completely eluded me for quite some time.

                The basic puzzle was fun, but the Wordle stage stumped me… I thought I'd misunderstood something with the colors and the many, many Es so I gave up!

                  tough but fun!
