Wednesday is Crossword Day

I know these crossword are getting old for the majority of you. As for the other three people that actually look at them, I assume the novelty is even wearing out for you. Does that mean I'm going to stop creating them? No. Will I stop posting about them? Maybe. This one, however, should be the last one for a while, as I am soon to enter the working world again* (at least for a short time) and I won't have all this time to kill.

I was tempted to call this crossword BOOBLESS and let it stay as an inside joke until you solved it, but I figured that would be too tactless, so I've called it CALCULATOR SPEAK. I hope that isn't too much of a give away. Because I incorporated more theme elements, this one took me much longer than the previous ones but I can't say if that actually made it any better.

Anyway, if anyone out there is actually doing them, I would love feedback. Do you think any would be newspaper worthy? Maybe not NY Times yet, but perhaps USA Today? Are you at least having a good time doing them? Should I give up on this an refocus on, say, making sudokus?*

But Sudoku isn't a number game at all, it's a logic game. You can play it with NO difference using pictures, symbols, etc. If it was a number game, I'd expect it to involve problem solving and clever number play, just like crossword involves problem solving and clever word play.

The ultimate grid-based logic game is Picross, which like Sudoku uses a grid and numbers, but creates pixel art images or designs. There are tons of ways to play it, but two web-based versions are located here and here.
