WORDY WEDNESDAY #30
PENT WORDS 6


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 below, 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 Edible sea snail / Thompson who played Lorraine in Back to the Future
2 Person who travels for pleasure / Tanning need, perhaps
3 Liquor agent / Unit whose name is derived from a Greek word for "work"
4 Holdup / Donald, to Huey, Dewey, and Louie
5 Trial / Wise
6 Reduce / ____ sprach Zarathustra
7 Board game about world conquest / Raised to maturity
8 Tough to eat, as meat / Killer ____
9 Therefore / Place to buy DieHard batteries
10 Fly that transmits sleeping sickness / Rosebud of Citizen Kane, for example

PENTOMINOES:

* Made bundles, as of hay
* Banjo player Scruggs et al.
* Rock that might be broken open
* Red ____
* Astonishes
