WORD SQUARES: OVERLAP
|Examples of Word Squares from 3x3 to 8x8 from Wikipedia|
Word squares have words in them that can be read both across and down. Below are four 4x4 grids with different colored borders, each of them overlapping with each other at the corners. Each clue is sorted by the grid that they're placed in, though otherwise, the clues aren't in any particular order.
Once you've finished this puzzle, the overlapped tiles (highlighted below in gold) will unscramble to spell out this week's FINAL ANSWER: a four-letter word
* Not the home team
* Tihs, for example
* Mario _____: Double Dash!!
* Skee-ball lane feature
* 100 cents in Cyprus
* "_____ Called Malice" (song by The Jam)
* Wink Martindale game show where contestants want to "go home with nothing!"
* Bullets and such
* Frozen snowman
* Someone that Mr. T pities?
* VIP vehicle
* Envelope part that gets its licks?
* Resident _____ (video game series that turns 20 next year)
* Runt's cohort from Animaniacs
* Rebelle toy maker
Oh, and don't forget that last week's puzzle is a contest, so be sure to solve that one before next Sunday to get your chance to win a copy of GAMES Magazine signed by me! Anyways, once you solve this week's puzzle, send the FINAL ANSWER to either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com (though I'm more likely to check the second one) and I'll put your name on a solvers list once I post the answers in about two weeks. You can also use those email addresses to give me some comments and feedback (or get a hint from me in exchange for a "hint star", more details for that are on the sidebar to the right). If you have a printer and want to solve this puzzle on paper, just head below the break for a version you can print out!
