#106: Cell Blocks, Hidden Wisdom, Crossword
Hello, and welcome to Puzzles for Progress! It's the final three puzzles of 9 Hours, 9 Puzzles on offering today, and therefore was made in my last three hours on February 25. As for having a backlog, I have...2/3 of a puzzle page! I've been busy...there'll be a backlog again sometime...
But before we get to that, there's Puzzles fordle Progress, my custom wordle: solve
Let's go ahead to hour eight. I made a Cell Blocks (Shikaku) puzzle with the djmathman classic "tilted square" theming, and it worked out semi-nicely:

Now let's go back to hour seven. First I wanted to make a linguistics puzzle, but my idea didn't really pan out. Then I wanted to make a crossword, but I was fettered by Crosshare autofill not working — but I didn't realize this for awhile, which left me twenty minutes to pivot and make the type I was planning to make in the last hour. It's a wildcard puzzle type, one that I used to make in the old days of Puzzles for Progress but hasn't appeared in a long time. Back this once from the grave, Hidden Wisdom! With a quote from Magic: The Gathering, fitting in with the past-Jacob vibe. I hope you enjoy the puzzle that came out of this crazy hour!
And then, in hour nine, Crosshare autofill sprung back to life for some reason, and I got to make my crossword! It's called "All's Well That Ends Well", and it has a small theme. At 10 by 11, It's also the first ever Puzzles for Progress crossword to not be square. Enjoy!
