Puzzle Elements[edit | edit source]
Text Heavy - The puzzle is presented in a typical "list of clues" format, written such that each answer is described as "too X" to fit the Goldilocks theming.
- Word Play - Before and After. Answering each clue provides one half of a phrase "X and Y"...
- Pairing - ...which can be paired with another clue using the other, unclued half of the phrase.
- Indexing - The second list of clues contains indices, which can be used on the linking words. Ordering by the arbitrarily-ordered first list of clues, we obtain...
- Final Clue Phrase - ...the clue phrase PARTNER OF ONE FOR ALL, which also constitutes part of an "X and Y" phrase.
