  • Confused Drow mages play with letters (part 2)

Being an extremely dedicated blogger who takes his work seriously, I went on holiday and ended up not having time to finish the post I was supposed to put up. On the subject of word games, here is a boardgame-themed crossword I made earlier instead. Black numbers are for across clues and red for down. I’ll put up solutions with my next post. First person to show me the full correct solution will win an extra power cycle on turn 1 next time I play Terra Mystica against them…

I am a physicist who lives in Nottingham and I have been boardgaming for the last 10 years. My favourite boardgame is Agricola. I also enjoy playing the Yetis in Terra Mystica, hence the profile pic. I should also credit Sophie for drawing most of the cartoons that feature in the blog. Without her, there would be no grumpy oxen.
