Ackbar-Themed Crossword

I’m a bit of a crossword enthusiast, though I’m definitely more of a solver than creator. But when the idea of making an Ackbar-themed crossword came to mind, I had to give it a shot. Beyond the theme entries, there are quite a few other Star Wars references in other answers as well.

So here it is: a 21×21 Ackbar-themed crossword, following actual crossword symmetry. I sadly don’t have the tools to make an interactive crossword, but after the cut is an image of the grid that you can print out, plus the list of clues…

    It’s amazing that you did this. Unfortunately there are a few random references here that leave me confuzzled. Like who Aragorn’s love is.. I’m not sure what that’s even from.

  2. Reanée says:

    Oooooh yeah never got into Lord of the Rings. If I had a printer I would sooo print this out and do it regardless of the few random references I don’t get.. because I could just google them!

    • Marissa says:

      You don’t need a printer: use graph paper! But filling in the black squares and numbering the squares is probably too much effort for someone lazy like you. Sigh. I’ll just print you a copy.
