Fiddle Around (Collab with Norah!)

Iโ€™m so excited to share this puzzle, my first collaboration, with the fabulous Norah Sharpe. It came together during a recent Crossweird stream, when someone in chat suggested a bit of merch that led to this theme.

Norah says: “Hi! my first time on Rich’s blog – what an honor!! ๐Ÿ’– This revealer has been on my theme idea list for a bit so when Rich mentioned it in passing, yes of course I immediately dropped “frozen.jpg” in his dms. This one’s got everything, I hope you enjoy it! While this puzzle didn’t quite make the cut for publication, be not worried – we’ll get there. ๐Ÿ™‚”

Thanks to Will for the test solve! Norah and Will contributed a puzzle to These Puzzl3s Fund Abortion, which is at 93% of its fundraising goal with 36 days left. Help support abortion access and get a pack of sixteen great puzzles!
