puzzle 51: themeless twenty-eight - horrible puzzle /s
Hey y'all!! Super excited to have TWO puzzles out today, the first one being here of course, and the second one being at Club 72! I love solving Croce's puzzles and I'm constantly wowed by his innovation in grid design/taste in great fill, so I'm glad I'm able to honour that in some way. It's a bit harder than my normal puzzles, but I'm super proud of it.
Speaking of fill, I've been making more of an effort recently to add a whole bunch of fresh entries to my personal word list. I'd like to think today's puzzle is a demonstration of that, especially around the middle.
Enjoy the puz!
