Each of these six squares has a solution. Together, they fit under a single theme.

Can you figure out all of the puzzles and name the theme?

    $\begingroup$ Great job! You figured out all of them. $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 13, 2020 at 12:59
  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, that's obviously better than my answer. Nice work. $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 13, 2020 at 13:00

Lower left is obviously

Life of Pi - book or film.

Upper middle seems to be

White Man - book or film, maybe? - or Invisible Man, as suggested by @jafe.

Upper right is

the letter L highlighted at the intersection of SEOUL and ISTANBUL. Maybe something like between capitals or capital connection? (Although Istanbul isn't actually a capital any more ... maybe city connection then?)

Lower right:

we just need to figure out what name to use for this colour. Purple square? Mauve square? Lavender square? Or better, The Colour Purple - book or film (thanks to @hexomino).

I'm thinking the theme might be

films. Or maybe something more specific, but I'm not seeing the common thread between these specific productions yet.

  • $\begingroup$ Nice work, Rand al'Thor, hexomino, and jafe. You each got figured out part. rot13(Juvgr Zna) is a good alternative answer that also fits the theme. $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 13, 2020 at 13:07
