1hr, 1min. Thanks for the great puzzle, Grant. Besides solving this, I think I’m equally impressed with myself for entering the answer string correctly on my first try.

• Jack Bross says:

I got it in correctly, for which I think I have to thank Croco-Puzzle. Years of brutally punishing my scores for mistakes on strings have finally made me careful.

Also, I definitely turned the puzzle sideways on my computer to make good use of monitor space, which suddenly meant I had to be careful about the 6’s and 9’s…

I loved this puzzle. Made me want to push the fave button even before i started solving. A great puzzle troughout and very rewarding 🙂

43:16 …Just in time to make the expert category…What a delightful puzzle!

• A really enjoyable puzzle, despite messing up the 7s near the bottom middle in the same way three times before finally noticing that there was another choice there.

Unfortunately not my cup of tea; a giant puzzle that is giant solely for size, not to express any particular idea or gimmick. No particularly memorable trick as well.

So I type in the answer string and I hit the “solved?” button and it goes “solved” and I’m like, wow, that’s an achievement, typing in the string with no mistake!!
