Lotsa fun!

Took me almost exactly one hour to complete. How about you?

It took me somewhat longer. Enjoyable as usual.

I had the grid filled in good time, then took just as long to get to the full solution.

Took me quite a bit longer, but I was doing it while rooting for the Phoenix Mercury against the Las Vegas Aces. One of the greatest WNBA games I have ever seen. Diana Taurasi is truly the GOAT.
Have all of you done Janglers block cryptic? That was a really fun puzzle too.

I did. It was tough for me, but very enjoyable. I needed to look up something to complete it.

Nice way to start the morning (HEX Slot Machine)

Very fun challenge! The last piece took a while to fall for me.

Agree. Harder than usual for a C&R variety.

A painfully slow beginning, but it really took off just past the halfway point. Very satisfying solution. How do C & R construct these things? It always amazes me.
