The Visual Thesaurus Crossword Puzzle: June Edition

There's an extra-fiendish twist to this month's crossword puzzle. Figure it out and you could win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt!

In one of our earlier contests, Six Degrees of the Visual Thesaurus, we had fun with how you can follow the links in the Visual Thesaurus from one word to another to form a chain. This time around, the links in the chain can be found in the eight circled entries of the crossword puzzle grid. So completing the chain may require you to navigate the VT's wordmaps.

(Two additional hints: all the entries are verbs, and one of them is actually a two-word phrase.)

Think you can figure it out? Once you've solved the puzzle, submit the eight 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 eight links, your T-shirt size, and your mailing address. Ten winners will be selected at random. Deadline is July 18, 2008. Have fun and good luck!
