The Visual Thesaurus Crossword Puzzle: February Edition
This month we have another devilish word-chain crossword puzzle to beguile you! Follow the chain of synonyms and you could win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt.
Like last month's crossword, this is a word-chain puzzle. Here's how it works: the crossword relies on how the Visual Thesaurus links from one word to another to form a chain of synonyms. Use the Visual Thesaurus word maps to figure out how one step links to the next. You'll find that the first and last steps in the chain form a pair of words on a calendrically appropriate theme, indicated by the entries at 20 and 22 across.
Think you can figure it out? Once you've solved the puzzle, submit the ten links in the chain by clicking here and you'll be entered to win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt! In the body of the message, please include the ten links, your mailing address, and your preferred T-shirt size. Ten winners will be selected at random. Deadline is March 23, 2012. Have fun and good luck!
