Do you like puzzle books? Then I can highly recommend Francis Heaney’s Brain Games for Word Nerds (eBay link because I think maybe it’s out of print). In it he shows off some puzzle formats of his own invention, including this one. How does it work?
This puzzle has two quotations, and letters can drop down from above or float up from below. Letters at the top will drop down into the upper grid, and letters at the bottom will float up into the lower grid. Letters in the middle may go up or down; you must figure out which are which.
I’ve left out a word from one of these quotes
to make the lengths line up better ummm as part of a meta-puzzle or something. If you can figure out what word is missing leave a comment and we’ll send you a hundred virtual Nexus Buxx which can be redeemed for, let’s say, future puzzles on this site.
Thanks to Will Eisenberg for testing this for me! He said it played tough, so you have been warned.
Hey, a new acrostic came out today over on the Crossword Nexus Patreon! And if you’re looking for even more puzzles, there’s still about a month to go in our charity puzzle pack. Check them both out and thanks for your support.
