The Visual Thesaurus Crossword Puzzle: January Edition
This month, it's the return of the word-chain crossword puzzle! Follow the chain of synonyms and you could win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt.
It's been a while since we've challenged you with 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 timely sporting theme, indicated by the entry at 36-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 February 17, 2012. Have fun and good luck!
