WORDY WEDNESDAY #20
PENT WORDS 4
In this puzzle, you must divide the grid into pentominoes (regions containing five cells each), and write a letter in each cell. The rows, reading from left to right, will contain the words hinted at by the ACROSS clues. The letters in the pentominoes, in reading order (left to right starting with the top row), will form the words hinted at by the PENTOMINOES clues; these clues are presented in no particular order. (In the example above, the rows spell PLANT, SHARE, and BITES, and the pentominoes spell the words PLANS, TREES, and HABIT.) Use the ACROSS answers to determine where the pentominoes are.
ACROSS (two answers per row):
1 Card game in which getting 10 bags carries a penalty / Mathematician Niels Henrik ____
2 Tessellation, for example / "Good ____" (Food Network show)
3 Certain naval rank / "Us and ____" (Pink Floyd song)
4 Make amends / Dodge
5 "The ____ King" / All episodes of "Friends", nowadays
6 Prepare dough, perhaps / ____ Mim (antagonist of Disney's "The Sword in the Stone")
7 Website where people post short videos / Make affectionate
8 It might interrupt a programme on the telly / Operatic solo
9 Dryer build-up / Hogwarts, for example
10 Aromatic resin / Farm tool
