Meta puzzles (also sometimes called contest puzzles) are crossword puzzles with an extra challenge. First, the grid is filled out like any other crossword puzzle. Afterwards, there is a prompt asking the solver for the solution to the meta. The prompt might ask for a 5-letter word, or for a word in a specific category, or anything else! To figure out the solution the solver needs to look for hints in the puzzle's clues, entries, grid layout, title, or anywhere else a devious constructor might have hidden them.
Check out our intro to meta puzzles for a step-by-step walkthrough of how to solve a meta!
