WORDY WEDNESDAY #102
FOXGERYPTICS 3
These puzzles are based on Gryptics. Gryptics seem like a neat concept to me; however, they are sullied by the main difference between the difficulty levels being how many randomly-placed letters are given at the start. (They're not even symmetrical ones, and even the hardest puzzles have them.) Apparently, Les Foeldessy didn't succeed in getting his puzzles to the large audience he wanted to, because the website gryptics.com no longer exists.

Insert a single letter in each space of each grid so that each grid's five rows and five columns spells a word from left to right or top to bottom (including the letters outside the grid). One of the words is a trademark.

Arrange the letters in the shaded spaces to form the final answer, an eight-letter word.

COMING NEXT WEEK. . .
* A very SENSELESS puzzle. . .
* Patron Puzzle #12, which will be delivered exclusively to Patreon supporters ($5 or more per month), is a 15x15 Pathfinder puzzle. Words snake around the grid horizontally and vertically; you're given the starting position and direction for each word, but the rest is up for you to determine. Every letter is used in two words; there are 50 words in all.

Until next time, yappy solving!
