Variety Puzzles and Games, August 2017, Secret Word, page 115, puzzle 6:

Clue: "Dynasty" name
Answer: Ewing

No.

Edit: I made this puzzle, and if that's my mistake and not an editor's change, I'm pretty embarrassed.

Dear Frances,

We rechecked the puzzle in question, Secret Word 6 on page 115 in the August 2017 issue of Variety Puzzles and Games, and found that you are absolutely correct. The clue “ “Dynasty” name” for EWING should have been “ “Dallas” name.” Your original clue, “JR’s surname” would have been correct, but was unfortunately changed by the editor. The error should have been caught subsequently by one of our proofreaders or test-solvers, but was not. We apologize for any inconvenience the error may have caused.

Thank you,
The Editors

Frances,

Even if it had been your error, and not PennyDell's, I would still have been extremely impressed at how quickly you were able to get a response from the editors. That is no small accomplishment, in my book! LOL wink

That was a surprise to find a reply first thing in the morning. Plus, overtones and Emma both got fast replies, too. Nice. smile
