Today's puzzle is from Nam Jin! This grid has such a pretty layout that I made it the icon for this site-- if you look up in the corner of your tab, you should see it there. Nam Jin's puzzle is a blast, Big Indie Puzzle Blog Energy!
I also wanted to shout out Nam Jin's puz-to-pdf tool
, which I use ALL the time, including on this site. (Although not for 7x7s, since most people are solving those online.) Super easy to use, and the output is very pretty. Okay I will stop talking about things that are pretty now!! Puzzle time!
Nam Jin says: "I always look forward to solving the latest 7x, and am grateful to Malaika both for the opportunity to contribute and for her thoughtful edits. Happy solving!"
