Hello hello! It's about halfway through the month, so it's mini-meta time!

This meta is also being sent in my Christmas cards this year (sending coal would've been equivalent), so there will not be a reveal to this when the next meta is posted, except to tell you how many solvers there have been. (Obviously, you can get instant feedback and count those who have "dropped the Mike" on Crosshare!)

1. Puzzle #43 recap

Puzzle #43 answer: GRAVY TRAIN

Correct entries: 40

You can find the writeup here!


2. This meta should play like a Level 1; again, that's the meta itself, since the grids themselves do tend to lean in the crunchy direction!

Until next time, may all the puzzles be yours! Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

The answer to the meta is a 6-letter word.
