“Cutting Edge Tech”

[AcrossLite][PDF][Solution] 👽🚀⚔️

Rey isn’t even a Skywalker and she’s the best Skywalker. Duel me.

Maybe making a Star Wars-themed crossword puzzle is a bit corporate of me. But, I’m an addict. They hooked me young, and they *will* be getting my dollars *whenever* new Star Wars content comes out.

So, if you’re as excited for “The Rise of Skywalker” (out on Friday) as I am, then I recommend trying this week’s puzzle to bring balance to the grid. (Ahem. Did you notice the miiinorly unbalanced grid? Of course you did.)

Solve or solve not. There is no try.

So forceful.

*Spoiler Alert* No, not that kind of spoiler. I don’t know if Poe and Finn make out (finger’s crossed).

This is the type of puzzle where it *means* something when answers intersect. In this case, I think it works pretty well seeing certain “Star Wars” characters that were killed or wounded by lightsabers in the films getting run through by LIGHTSABERS in the grid. Ah, if only the singular LIGHTSABER would have fit. Alas, I’m a slave to the 15×15 sometimes…

Happy solving, rebel scum.

  1. Am I missing something in the clue for 14a? “Ami” is “friend” in French, but “Firenze” is an Italian city.

  2. I can’t get any of your puzzles to export to Puzzazz, even when I click on the Acrosslite button – they go to Drop Box but with a .zip extension and I get an error message when I try to open them as a .puz. Puzzazz says to contact the author. Thanks for your help.

    • Hi, Deborah. WordPress bizarrely doesn’t support uncompressed .puz files (they’re “insecure,” apparently?) Next week I’m going to set up a Dropbox folder and link to uncompressed .puz files for each of my puzzles. Thanks for your patience!
