Fun meta here: http://redhead64puzzles.blogspot.com/20 ... wears.html

I'd say it's Week 2 level. Maybe 2 point something.

Thanks, Chris. Enjoyable meta. Hard for me to rate puzzle difficulty. Here’s my scale. If I get the meta shortly after completing the grid, it’s a 1 for me. If I have to put it down once for a time before returning to it, it’s a 2. And so on. 4s are the ones I don’t get!

Thanks for posting the link! Going to submit an answer to the redhead in a few but am 100% sure I've got the FINAL ANSWER.

I'd say an easier week 2...one where you finish the grid and don't get it right away, but then come back 15 minutes later and it pops out at you...

Ha! Yeah...after I posted that, I looked at the website and it seemed like he posts the full names and/or emails of solvers. Plus he has some unnecessarily complex "hint stars" system that made me just shrug my shoulders and walk away, content in knowing I solved a good puzzle he made.

This person doesn't do a lot of metas, but does post quality variety puzzles week after week. Clueing does veer towards pop culture and video games though. It's very much a sibling blog to https://mathgrant.blogspot.com/, which also posts weekly variety puzzles and uses the hint star/names of solvers format.

Solved. No relation, although we share a last name, er, number.

Thanks for sharing. Grid and meta were both gentle.
