Crossword #10: Wisconsin’s Playground


Puzzle thumbnailThree weeks ago I introduced my Themeless? puzzle here and explained I had created two puzzles for an upcoming event. The event has upcome and gone and today I am offering the puzzle distributed there.

If you are unfamiliar with the event–a Scrabble tournament with a 31-year history in Wisconsin’s Playground–you would find this puzzle’s original theme clues to be unhelpful. Fear not, the version of the puzzle on offer here features alternate clues that should help. Somewhat. I hope.

Checkmark iconThe solution to this puzzle was published on Monday, October 20.

If you are familiar with this Scrabble tournament and/or its locale, you might want to go ahead and solve the original version (linked here). Extra props to you if you work this version.

So far I have had limited feedback from solvers at the tournament. What feedback I have indicates this puzzle may be tougher than my recent offerings.

Please enjoy it. I will reveal the solution a week from today.
