A Quintessential meta

· Published 2 months ago

This concept came to me when I was half asleep. It took a while to figure out a meta-mechanism that would work with the concept but I finally came up with one. I hope you find this a unique and original metanism. It's weird but it will tie…

I can no longer judge if mine are hard or not. I originally was not going to include the asterisks for the themers but that'd make this too difficult. Now I hope it is hard but getable. This came to me when one of us asked "How to you spell…

Edit: I guess it's time for me to make this public. This one is very cute and easy (well, you may need to google but it will be fun googling!)

Two years ago or so I dug myself into a Rabbit Hole when I thought a meta used this mechanism. It didn't. But this one does.
Here are a few guidelines for this 1: This is a concept driven puzzle more so than a language driven puzzle; don't look…
This is the exact same puzzle as but this one has some themer pointers (both the easy and the hard themer pointers)
