Interesting theme and a clever construction to get the clashes to come out as they did. Confirming the 6th place took a while! It's snowing today! What the heck? It was 75 degrees yesterday....

Fairly easy gridfill, followed by some head-scratching over the instruction. A lucky search in onelook.com's reverse dictionary led to a possibility; my reaction was at first "no way", followed by...

In binary this is only EV 13! Could this be the most thematically packed puzzle ever? Or this week, anyway? Lots to keep track of, and I must say I sort of stopped paying attention to the extra...

Not a surprising theme, but clever execution, sly title, & remarkable that only real words fill the final grid, so everything you'd expect from Mr O., I suppose. A balmy 25F today after several nights...

I can certainly appreciate the masterful job of constructing the puzzle, but this one ranked low on the fun-o-meter for me. No pennies to drop or endgame to solve, so it was just a matter of slogging...

Just read a short article about a company called Matthews International, which makes products for funeral homes and cemeteries (caskets, etc.), and also designs packaging for tobacco products.

Certainly, a breather after last week's toughie, but good fun nonetheless. Not much else to say about this one, I think.

A very enjoyable puzzle and thankfully not as daunting as it looks (much as Wagner, according to Mark Twain, is better than he sounds). I made either an inspired or lucky guess as to the nature of the...

Well, I'll start the thread although I am still completely bamfoozled by the endgame. I have all the down clues solved but have yet to hit upon some consistent modifications which will fit in the grid...

Nice puzzle, packed with thematic material. It was made a little easier since all 4 "crowning glories" use the same cluing device. Against all odds I found the highlighting, but I was (am) frustrated...

Quite a doozy this week but very enjoyable. Not necessary, of course, but I made copious use of the LEN, MID and VLOOKUP functions in Excel to count string lengths, pick out the Nth letter of the...

A fun puzzle, I thought. The theme was unknown to me, so some Googling once the message from the omitted letters was clear was needed. Wikipedia to the rescue. A little more work was needed to get all...

Much like last week, a perfectly fine puzzle with no end game to speak of; what to do was readily apparent so it was just a matter of identifying the nature of each clue. Still, many good clues that...

A fine puzzle though I would have liked more of an endgame. The method of entering the thematic answers is pretty easily deduced, and the revelation of the quote elicits an "ah" as you see how it...

What a long preamble, but what a fun puzzle. It took me a few minutes to get what the down message was telling me, but the P D'd, all was clear. Thanks hedge-sparrow.

A nice puzzle up until the very last step which I felt was borderline unfair. The gridfill was straightforward as was identifying the group. But, the Chambers entry for the group identifies two...

So tired of seeing this theme again and again and again............ 1a revealed quickly, so I figured this would be a piece of cake, and the top was indeed quick; got bogged down in the bottom half...
