The largest crossword yet that plays by New York Times rules, from the maker of the widely acclaimed Ubercross Fiddy!

Fund the creation of the largest crossword yet that plays by New York Times rules... and unlike the current record-holder, ours won't require a sixty-year-old dictionary to solve! No offense meant to Robert Stilgenbauer, whose 1949 record-setter, at 111x111, has had a good long run. But it relies on words that were obscure even when it was produced. That means it's not much fun to solve today. I feel like crosswording can do better. I feel like it deserves better. I see a mountain, and I don't just want to climb it, I want to build a bigger mountain for others to climb. The money is for labor costs, pure and simple: putting this together won't be easy! I estimate the final grid will contain 4,000 answers-- never the same answer twice, no two-letter answers, no uncrossed squares and, of course, nothing ungettable! Help me make the world of puzzles a little more fun and challenging today!
