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!
