Tonight's puzzle is a 12x9 titled "What's the Shortcut for a Superscript?" by Lil roster alum, Darby Ratliff, who we are thrilled to have aboard the editing team for 2024. We think you'll find this puzzle a gentle and delightfully nerdy solve.
Darby says: "This puzzle is further proof of my nerdiness (if you needed any). I spend a lot of time with citations in my day-to-day, and that inspired this grid. Many thanks to Jess and ROWS (Rafa, Olivia, Will and Sally) for helping me to refine this theme and puzzle!"
