L4664: ‘Dream Match’ by Aver

Posted by Encota on 9 Jul 2021

I really enjoyed this puzzle! It combined a great grid with clever letter-sums, each of which resulted in an ‘O’.

Extra letters from the clues spelt out TITANIA (‘a speaker’), AMND II.1 (‘an abbreviated reference’), MUD (‘what ruined a thematic figure’), ADD LETTER VALUES (‘an instruction …’) and SIXTEEN LINES (‘what solvers must add to the grid’). All of this linked to the Shakespearean reference: “The nine men’s morris if fill’d up with mud”.

Add the 16 lines (as I’ve tried to do above, albeit faintly) and all is sorted. I think. Loved it – well done Aver!

Cheers,

Tim / Encota
