WORDY WEDNESDAY #180
PENT WORDS 36
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 During the time that / Not invitational
2 Country singer Ricky / Created
3 Weapon on a firearm / Soviet Union space station
4 A type of bed / Unfortunate
5 Princess who sings "Do You Want to Build a Snowman?" / Dark shape formed when light hits an object
6 Have an affinity for / Place to keep credit cards, often
7 Panic! at the Disco guitarist Harris / Musician Brian
8 Priscilla's former husband / Chart of multiplication results, for example
9 Famous impaler / Nearly
10 Prisoner / Aladdin prop

PENTOMINOES:
