Another quick solution post. Last week’s was pretty accessible; the six theme entries hid the names of the symbols on the keys 1 through 6 on a QWERTY keyboard:
BANG (another name for !), AT, POUND, DOLLAR, PER CENT, CARET … what comes next is AMPERSAND. So the phrase formed from two grid entries hiding the “seventh sign” was the (only theoretically sensical) DAMPER SANDBOX. (In retrospect there was an actual in-the-world thing I could have used.)
Up next is #66, “Unpack Your Adjectives.”
The answer to the metapuzzle is formed from two grid entries. Submit your answer using the contact form by 11 pm Pacific Time on Monday, June 29. I’ll publish a new puzzle next Tuesday.
