Puzzle No. 64: "Cast Party" (with Hoang-Kim Vu)
Back for the first time in a while with a 22x21 puzzle with the wonderful Hoang-Kim Vu. I loved working with Kim on this puzzle and am so excited to share it with you here as an extra-large summer treat!
From Kim: "It was a huge pleasure and honor to put this puzzle together with Matthew (and inshallah, hopefully not our last collab!). We bounced this original Matthew idea back and forth until we go to this grid version, and while we're stretching the wordplay a little bit here, we think solvers will find it satisfying in the end.
One of the nicest bits about working with Matthew is his talent for squeezing really lovely fill in as much of the long space as possible, so I'm really psyched for things like 38- and 74-Down. Hope you enjoy!"
