WORDY WEDNESDAY #155
PENT WORDS 31
This puzzle contains a word suggested by patron Anthony Bailey. Support me on Patreon at the $5 per month level and solve the monthly Patron Puzzle for a chance to suggest a seed word for a future puzzle, or at the $20 per month level to suggest one seed word every month!
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, 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 Emulates a boxing referee, perhaps / "I ____ You Dance" (Lee Ann Womack song)
2 Pinky's partner / Planet that's one astronomical unit away from the sun
3 Virtuosity / Publicity piece
4 Sage / Luke Skywalker's father
5 Candies often bought around Easter / ____ of Home (cooking magazine)
6 Tear to pieces / Amalfi Coast's country
7 Like a memorable tune / What M&M's do in your mouth, and not in your hands
8 Stop sign color / Novelist Salman
9 Like Pepe le Pew / It may be pierced
10 Small waterfall / Attempt
