    Awesome! I love MARIO
    49D MARIO___ Kart (game in which you can use the items at the ends of the starred clues)
    kart so I was psyched to see this theme 😊. FYI I think you left out the stars in the starred cues - should be easy to click edit and add them in
    • Philip Chow constructor · 2 months ago
      whoops i forgot the stars... it's fixed now... thanks!
    • Frisco17 6:51 · 2 months ago
      Great theme and execution, as usual! Loved how the themers stacked onto each other so well!
      • Relentless001 🤓16:16 · 2 months ago
        I don't really care about Mario kart but that was still a really good crossword. Tough as hell
        • Philip Chow constructor · 2 months ago
          thanks! glad you stuck with it... yeah it's kind of niche and the puzzle is very name-heavy (too much pop culture as my dad would lament) and the fill has tons of icky partials... went through several iterations and still wasn't completely happy with it, but good enough i hope

          Loved it, and loved the theme !!

            Mario Kart is something I enjoy while being terrible at it. Fun puzzle :-)
            • Tonearm 🤓3:24 · 2 months ago
              Great theme!

                I’m normally not very good at the double black diamond rated puzzles but I got this one okay! Must have gotten a bullet bill or a blue shell 😂
