With the advent of online solving and advanced puzzle formats like JPZ, you have to question why we do some of the things we do. Like, why mark theme entries with an asterisk? If it’s not obvious which ones are your theme, you don’t want solvers hunting them down after they’ve completed the puzzle. Today’s JPZ (and online puzzle) mark the theme with relevant colors, so for the optimal solving experience you’ll want to solve with one of those two options.
