looking for odd nyt puzzle-lots of errors
« on: June 07, 2010, 01:49:57 PM »
I am looking for a crossword I played when I was first learning the puzzles. It contained ten errors (intentionally) and was very helpful for learning how to play a nyt crossword. The errors had to do with:

a two letter answer
repeated words
symmetry
misspellings
numerals as part of the answer (2-d or something)
one of the clues was something like "number of errors in this puzzle" (there were nine so the answer was "ten"

Any help would be appreciated.
PS I found THURSDAY, JUNE 19, 2008's puzzle (LIES). It is similar but the errors are not related to puzzle construction. I think the puzzle I am looking for was in the mid to late nineties.

That's great! It is it!

Thank you.

Jeff

PS Did you remember it or did you search for it? What tools or search terms did you use if the latter? How can I search better?
