Important Note About The Answer
The puzzle is a freeform crossword. It's
solved in the traditional manner. I may use a theme throughout. A
single word answer is derived
from the letters in the crossword. That
answer may be a real word or just a series of random letters. If
you completed the Competition Sample,
you may think there is an obvious flaw in this procedure. Your
question might be, why fill in the letters to all the words if
you tell me which
letters will be used as the password to open the Answer
Sheet. I have that covered. You will need to complete
the entire crossword in a CrosswordGold™ event. The
answer sheet will have a nuance that levels the field of competitors. It's
not difficult, but effective. Everyone has an equal opportunity to
win the Grand Prize or any other prize/award. You'll learn
about it when you go to open the second of three lock boxes. Yes,
the competition puzzle will have three lock boxes. The
Competition Sample has only two!
