Waiter! Waiter!

· By Lloyd

Life's been... something... and so this has been languishing in the Drafts folder for some time. My first "Thursday-style" puzzle. Have fun! Some commentary on the puzzle over on the site (https://generalisms.com/2022/04/10/waiter-waiter/)
Checking for previous play data...

      I really enjoyed it! 56D
      56D ESPYSBest Play Award, and others
      plurality may need to be looked at.

        also a typo in "Radiers" but still a very fun puzzle
        • Lloyd constructor · 2 months ago
          Thanks, both. Adjusted those. Glad you thought it was fun, still! 😊
      • Aaron 🤓5:26 · 2 months ago
        That was lots of fun! Really enjoyed your postmortem analysis of your puzzle too. Despite not being something that's easy to see as a solver, symmetry is often the key difference between self-published and newspaper-quality puzzles.

          I believe Vespucci's first name is spelled with a G instead of a C. Looks like it could stay as is if you change the surname to Vespucio. Had me stuck for a minute, but otherwise fun!
          • TimisYoung 🤓12:23 · 2 months ago
            Loved it! One of those where when you get the trick, it's a blast to solve
            • DIS 🤓9:52 · 2 months ago
              Lots of fun!

                Nice one! The aha! moment was well-earned.
