Themed Crossword #9: Board Meetings

Hello! This crossword is brought to you by 25-, 38-, 41-, 46-, 50-, 52-, and 59-Down. (Seriously though, no idea why so many brand names came up in this fill.)

This one has a contest-ish element (I say “-ish” because there are no prizes…for this one, anyway). Feel free to e-mail the answer to the following question to [email protected] for bragging rights and/or practice in typing my e-mail address for possible future contests. Deadline is noon, one week from today.

Question: The ten words that comprise the answers to the starred clues can all be found near the edges. What word can be found directly in the center?

  1. Hi Jeffrey… As you probably know, you were mentioned in Matt Gaffney’s weekly comments last month. So, I printed off your “Themed Crossword #8–Double Shift” at the time, at work, and have worked it but not finished it. Here is my level: I can sometimes solve Matt’s puzzles in the first couple weeks of a month, but not at the end of the month. Sometimes, I can complete the puzzle, but not get the answer to the “Meta.”

    Anyway, I went to Squaresville just now to try your next puzzle, which was No.9. However, you did not link a PDF file, so I can’t print it. I cannot download PUZ ZIP files on the computers I use most.

    Is it possible to add the PDF to No.9, or to future puzzles again? Like I said, I’ve only just started visiting your website, but I already miss this feature.

    Thank you for considering this, and for posting some puzzles for us cruciverbal “hacks!”

    Best regards… –John Cogan in Vermont
