Here's another variety crossword type: Marching Bands
- Words march across each line. Each line has 2 words of variable length. The two words will fill up the whole line.
- Line 6's words are 5 letters each - they don't go through the black box.
- Words circle in each band. Each band's words are entered clockwise, one word after another, with clues given in order. The words together will fill up the band.
- All words are at least 3 letters long, and all are in dictionary.com except for the abbreviation and the phrase
