Today’s crossword seemed like a breeze at first.  We were flying through it, until it came down to the final 2 clues:
28 Across: Card game for two
3 Down: Horace’s “Ars __”
Luckily, Christopholis made a couple of good guesses with “Ecarte” and “Poetica.”  VICTORY!

Victory today, but only due to some last minute epiphanies by Amandalearns.  Yeah, I’m a genius.

Today’s crossword took just over half an hour to complete. It would have been much faster had we not hit a snag regarding the correct spelling of Hernando Cortez, a peculiar name fr air polution, and Korilearns’ sloppy writing of the letter “E.”

Today was a close one.  We had “bloops in one” as an answer to 49 across until the very last minute when we figured “bloop single” made more sense (duh!) and then we were able to finish the puzzle.  Win!  We also only ate 3 pieces of pizza each today.  Win!

Today’s puzzle was a bit of a disappointment.  Usually one of the clues is clever enough to elicit a giggle or two out of us, but not today.  Show us the clever!  Sad face.

Sure, we didn’t know what a “veldt” was, but that doesn’t mean  we didn’t still win!  Click here to see our post on “veldt.”

We would like to thank Martufo for her contributions to today’s puzzles.  Without her knowledge of Greek mythical woodland creatures, none of this would have been possible.
