WOOHOO! Welcome to the 50th Trash Panda Puzzles crossword! It's hard to believe that I've already put out that many crosswords, but looking at my stat tracking, I've used 2,209 unique words prior to this puzzle. (Yes, I'm counting plural words separate from singular words.) I'd like to think that I'm continuously improving my constructing skills and hopefully before too long, I will finally get a grid accepted by a major publication. In the meantime, I try to have awesome crosswords here on this blog for everyone to play.
I thought about doing something special for the 50th puzzle. I looked at weird shapes, 21x21 grid sizes, or purposefully only use words I've used since starting this blog. In the end, I decided to simply make a themed puzzle and instead I wish to thank all the wonderful people who have supported me so far on this fun adventure. I look forward to the next 50+ crosswords, hopefully a collaboration here or there (DM me if interested 😉), a major publication or two under my belt, and more wonderfulness here at Trash Panda Puzzles.
