WORDY WEDNESDAY #235
PENT WORDS 47
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 Hertz rival / iPad, for one
2 Croft of the Tomb Raider games / Narrate, as a story
3 Fabric made from the Angora goat's fur / "Once ____ a time. . ."
4 In a state of complete disorder / Little
5 "____ New Yorker" (Odyssey song) / Super Mario ____ (1992 racing game)
6 One parking cars for hotel guests / A type of tissue in vascular plants
7 ____ the bottom of the barrel / Place to learn karate
8 Vessel for keeping hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold / Pizza ____ (restaurant chain)
9 Robin Hood's forte / Bitter alcoholic drink
10 Environment / Ooze
