crossword + meta: 5 hours to write  


Matt here — quick self-post since joon is spear-fishing in Belize (I believe, perhaps erroneously).

Eight HANDs in the grid last week; as suggested by the clue at 68-Across, play a game of two-hand touch football by highlighting all the letters that touch two of the HANDs. They form APPLAUSE, which is another form of “two-hand touch.”

    It felt harder than a week 1 to me, right up until the penny dropped back into week 1 territory.

  2. Seth says:

    Applause for a great meta!

  3. Paul+Coulter says:

    Now that’s what I call a good Week 1. Not immediately obvious, but fast and easy, clever idea, fresh technique, and apt answer. I especially like the two-hand touch leading to applause.

  4. Mac says:

    Super cute!

  5. Chip says:

    A little more “involved” than a typical Week 1, but the “click” was very obvious and satisfying.

    I appreciate you sharing this valuable information with us! That’s what I call a good first week. Not immediately clear, yet quick and simple, clever idea, novel technique, and appropriate response
