WORDY WEDNESDAY #348
LOGICROSSWORD 8
Blacken some cells in the grid below, and fill the rest with letters to form words left-to-right and top-to-bottom, crossword style. All words are Scrabble-legal (see scrabble.merriam.com); however, most of the words in the intended solution should be familiar.

Arrange the letters in the shaded cells to get the final answer, a single word. (If any of the shaded cells are blackened, then the final answer will be less than 8 letters long.)
* No two black cells share an edge. All the white cells are connected through their edges.
* The word FACETIOUS reading horizontally intersects the word RHYTHM reading vertically.
* The word ASHY reading horizontally intersects the words AAHS and THAE reading vertically.
* The word LOX intersects the word OXO.
* The word SYZYGY reads vertically.
* The words AY, HOOCH, OOH, and RYA appear somewhere.
* Row 3’s rightmost letter is the same as row 4’s leftmost letter.
* One of rows 1 through 7 contains a 4-letter word that ends in IKE.
* Column G contains a letter which appears only once in the grid.
* Two words intersect at A1 which end with the same letter; the horizontal word has an odd number of letters in it.

WORDY WEDNESDAY #349
SNAKE CRISSCROSS 11
This puzzle's crisscross grid contains entries which read across and down as normal; these words are defined in alphabetical order by length under the heading “Crisscross Words.” The grid also contains a number of “snakes”: areas which follow a single clear path. Each of these snakes contains an entry which snakes from one end of the path to the other. These entries are defined under the heading “Snake Words”, and are also clued in alphabetical order by length. You must determine how the grid is divided into snakes; no two snakes overlap.

Arrange the letters in the highlighted cells to form the final answer, an 8-letter word.
