New York Times crossword: September 30, 2014
« on: March 25, 2019, 09:36:18 PM »
Because we're not supposed to reply to 4-year-old threads...

Every week, The New York Times picks three crosswords from its archives and offers them up for free. This week, one of the freebies is the puzzle from Tuesday, September 30, 2014. I won't give away the answers, but two of the clues are "Modern host of 35-Across" and "Longtime host of 35-Across."

The puzzle is at https://www.nytimes.com/crosswords/game/daily/2014/09/30. It'll only be free for the rest of this week.

I normally suck at the NYT crossword, but with three key clues filled in first it was much easier.

"It's the greatest challenge in the world to invent a new game. For every one you see, every concept that is ultimately refined and developed, a dozen are worked on and not worked on, or almost worked on, or dropped because they don't read any more. We test and hammer and test and hammer...

When you finally get it down so that it looks very very simple, that one has had the most complicated amount of work." -Mark Goodson
