We're thrilled to bring you the Lil AVC X debut of Darby Ratliff, called "Eat Nuts, Kick Butts"! It's a 12x9 grid we think you'll find breezy and badass.
Darby Ratliff (she/her) is a constructor who lives in St. Louis. She uses puzzles as a much needed contrast to her studies as a graduate student and enjoys thinking about food, words, and sports (in varying orders depending on the day). She also writes for Diary of a Crossword Fiend.
Darby says: "I'm so excited to be a part of the Lil AVC X roster this year! I've already learned so much and really cemented my love-hate relationship with CrossFire. Big shout out to Will for his help with this puzzle!"
Headed to your inbox tomorrow: our last two roster debuts!
