SQP122 – Quiptic #16

Welcome, Quipsters!

Thanks for stopping by. This is a cryptic week, so I’d thought I’d open things up with a gentle puzzle. As usual, it has one device per clue, which is revealed to anybody who wants in the “helpers” version. I hope it’s fun for everybody who’s curious! My gratitude to Will Eisenberg for test solving.

In site news, I’ve finally organized all the puzzles and made them easier to access in a drop-down menu on the left. I’ll admit I hadn’t been to Square Pursuit since the month I launched it, and yikes! You should be able to get your hands on what you’re looking for more easily now. My standard disclaimer is that I wasn’t as strong a constructor back on those early puzzles, and while they’re still fun, I can’t promise they’re as fair!

The survey for the betterment/expansion of Square Pursuit is up for one more week if you’re interested in making your voice heard and haven’t done so yet. Thanks so much to the many who have already responded.

Take care and enjoy the puzzle. I’ll be back on Wednesday with a challenging blocked cryptic.
