# The crossword packing puzzle

To describe it shortly, it's like Scrabble Tetris. Except the quality is much lower.

• Fit all the pieces inside the grid
• The pieces can NOT be rotated
• No piece can be placed on top of the crossed slots
• The letters must line up and create a valid crossword

Here's a text representation of the grid, where o is a valid place for a letter and x is not:

OOOOXOOXO
OOXOOOOOO
OOOOOXOOO
OXOXOOOOO
OOOOOXOOX
XOOXOOOOO
OOOOOOOOO
XOXOOOXOO
OOOOOOOOX

• The text is very hard to read. I suggest moving the bullet points into the question, and maybe even trying to format everything else into the question, for screen readers and those that can't see images etc – Tas Nov 29 '17 at 1:49
• Actually I made an edit to do some of this for you. Hopefully I got everything correct, but if not you are free to edit the question yourself. – Tas Nov 29 '17 at 1:53
• I was very confused until I realized that: >! the number of letters is less than the number of empty spaces. You might want to specify that empty spaces are allowed...unless you want figuring that out to be part of the challenge! – Agargara Nov 29 '17 at 3:00

• @Agargara Ugh I never noticed that, I think that's sloppy. I was racking my brains try to solve it. I had a couple of the words but couldn't get them to fit because of that...They should've all just been filled with X's if they were meant to be empty, cause it's not a real crossword if it has gaps. – Tas Nov 29 '17 at 4:04
