    Question Crossword Puzzle

    I do not like crossword puzzles. But for those of you who do, tell me, shouldn't the block above the block that is numbered 15 have a number in it? It would be a two-letter word in the downward direction....

    Perhaps that is why the picture containing the horse's nose is covering that block...so you can not see that it does or does not have a number in it.

    If it was actually a block, then yes, it would have a number. Since it isn't a block, it's probably best that it doesn't.

    I am refering to the block that is part of 11 across. 11 across has 6 blocks. This particular block is the 5th one in 11 across.

    Or 11 Across is 4 letters long, the next "block" is blank or background, and the last block is the start of 13 Down.

    Hi Sslug!

    I really like crossword puzzles. For now just look at 11 Across clue:

    Not your papa

    It has six blocks. I got an answer that I think is right. The lay-over of the block puzzle pieces of the horse does obscure some blocks but I think these may have been intentional.

    The third block across is for 12 Down clue: Peak
    The sixth block across is for 13 Down clue: You can pick these

    I try to not over-think crosswords. Burns and shorts out my brain. Hope this helps.

    Trovin' on,
    Beth

    Sluggy, sometimes I wonder why do we even bother? They never listen, and just go do what they want anyway. Oh, well ... blah, blah, blah ... horse to water ... blah, blah, blah.

    Don't worry Molnar, I'm definately backing you. 11 across is four letters and the answer is quite obvious. I still haven't figured out some of the other answers though.

    Thanks guys! I was just trying to explain the grid layout; did not mean to confuse more people.

    Since Domino finds our re-creations so much more full of humor; my version of the grid:

    “Tmcky ymu kra Ymu, tekt fs truar tekl trua. Teara fs lm mla kifva wem fs Ymuar tekl Ymu.” ~ Dr. Seuss

    Beth, I think I came up with the same answer you did. But then again, I think I get the same answer Molnar and Sluggy did too. As Beth said, the horse does obscure some blocks, and I too, believe this is intentional. So what is Domino trying to do? Which of the two answers is correct? Sluggy's crossword grid layout makes more sense, so does this mean that 11 across has 4 letters? If so, why bother placing that horse on top of the grid? Is 11 across really 6 letters long instead of 4? There is an obvious answer as a six-letter word too.
