    Just wanted to share a few comments on this one. While I still like the puzzle and I think it allows an enjoyable solve, I definitely think I should have just created a good, high-quality puzzle as opposed to forcing a theme. While I did spend a lot of time and effort creating the theme, it doesn’t look particularly nice and definitely seems forced, similar to my “it ALL adds up” puzzle. I think my recent Surf puzzles featured in The Puzzlemaster’s Workshop are much better puzzles overall.
