New York Times Mini Crossword ⚔

Okay @Mert_Aksac pointed out we shouldn’t pollute the Wordle so much with NYT Mini Crossword chat and he’s right isn’t he?

So here’s your thread for the game

Seems to tick over at midnight in New York.

Lol. Absolutely done by the first letter of 5 down and the end of 4 across. Heh

Erm

Not sure how the interface messed up there but I reckon it was actually a pretty quick one, maybe sub 1 minute

If there’s room for this then there’s also room for a separate thread for the whinging about it. Anyway…

Does feel a little like a small number of users deciding what is and isn’t allowed as a diversion within a thread but :man_shrugging:

I like the little jingle when you get it right, makes me feel like I’m in an episode of Frasier

But of it’s annoying for some is that big a deal to have two threads?

I’m not that bothered, hence the shrug emoji, but I reckon the point stands.

Didn’t know the building name or Spanish word for rice

I’d rather have rolling daily games in one thread rather than split apart. Seems like some mega posters just want to curate things exactly how they want rather than let things be organically.

We’re ignoring the elephant in the room which is that this crossword is reliably and consistently shit. And yet somehow we carry on.

No way does it belong in the Wordle thread though, come on get real.

1:02. There isn’t a free UK equivalent to this is there?

Or rather it’s annoying to read something completely irrelevant to what the thread is about?
