Puzzle Notes

Dear friends:

Today we have a tricky 12x11 midi for you from Kunal Nabar called "Good Game". We think it's a 4.5/5 difficulty.

Q. Hmm, "Good Game" sounds like sports ... is there sports in this puzzle?
A. Yes, as you might have guessed from the title, there is some sports in this puzzle.
Q. Will I be able to do this puzzle even if I am not a fan of sports?
A. Yes, absolutely!
Q. Is one of the great things about crosswords how you get gently exposed to all sorts of things that constructors, with all their various and manifold idiosyncrasies, are into, whether you are into those things or not, because the stuff you aren't into is, due to the very nature of the crossword as an art form, crossed by words and clues from other aspects of culture and experience?
A. Why, yes! I couldn't have put it better myself.

Next week from Lil AVC X: A new puzzle from Rafael Musa, and a surprise guest puzzle!

Thanks for your support!
