Not a Yacht Rock puzzle today, but we named this one for a Christopher Cross song because we’ve got a Snake Charmer variety puzzle! Snake Charmer is a variety type invented by Patrick Berry and is traditionally presented in an “S” shape, but I prefer the more compact, winding format here. I also think it looks a bit like a coiled-up snake, or even a game of Snake, which is thematically appropriate.
Other venues have been running Snake Charmer puzzles recently, so if you enjoyed this one, consider subscribing to Outside The Box or Nathan Curtis’s Patreon. Nathan actually has a free Snake Charmer puzzle he published recently.
By the way, this puzzle was created entirely with spread the word(list)! We’re obviously partial to the collaborative word list but STWL allowed me to crank this one out quicker and cleaner so I’m glad to have given it a shot.
