Puzzle #213: Playtime

Got a Sunday-sized puzzle for you today (pdf, puz, pdf solution)! Only one solution this time, sorry.


  1. I don't understand 20D and 54A and how they are supposed to make a "chess board" (I presume). Also the SW corner has me totally stumped. Can you post what the solutions are supposed to mean? Thank you!

    1. 20D is SHUFFLEBOARD (since it shuffles the letters of BOARD) and the 54 square is CHESSBOXING (putting CHESS in a box). There's a lot going on in the SW so it can be tricky to see! EXTREME POGO is the letters PO and GO at the extremes of POKEMON GO; MOTOCROSS is MO and TO crossing in 114A and 89D; and SKYDIVING is SKY going down in 108D.

  2. Wow, that's a lot complexity, but you pulled it off! Thx for the reply too!
