September can be a bittersweet month: Its arrival signals both the end of summer and the start of the new school year. School-age kids are understandably bummed, while parents feel—let’s be honest—a little bit of relief. It’s precisely times like these that require something you can depend on, like another issue of GAMES WORLD OF PUZZLES.

Each answer word in this crossword variation has two clues leading to it, using different meanings of the word. The clues are separated into Across and Down, but are otherwise ordered randomly. When you find two Across clues or two Down clues that seem to have the same answer, add up their clue numbers to determine the place in the grid at which the answer should be entered. For example, if the clue for 1-Across were “Metallic element” and the clue for 17-Across read “Starring role,” the answer would be “lead,” which would go in 18-Across (1 + 17). Note: Tags such as “Hyph.” and “2 wds.” have been omitted. ACROSS 1 Cape Canaveral event 2 San Francisco Giants pitcher Bumgarner 3 Not far from 4 George S. Patton, for one 5 Started, as a grill 6 Lower…

There is one place for each letter of the alphabet in the 26 empty squares of each blank column in the diagram below. Fill in each letter so that a word of at least five letters is formed reading across only. Not all of the letters to the left and right of the empty box are used; it’s up to you to determine which ones are needed to complete familiar words. Some letters may fit in more than one of the empty squares to complete words, but we only came up with one arrangement that would complete a word in each row. Maybe you’ll find a better solution. Proper names are not allowed. ANSWER 52-SKIDDOO…
