Important Note About The Answer

The puzzle is a freeform crossword.  It's solved in the traditional manner.  I may use a theme throughout.  A single word answer is derived from the letters in the crossword.  That answer may be a real word or just a series of random letters.  If you completed the Competition Sample, you may think there is an obvious flaw in this procedure.  Your question might be, why fill in the letters to all the words if you tell me which letters will be used as the password to open the Answer Sheet.  I have that covered.  You will need to complete the entire crossword in a CrosswordGold™ event.  The answer sheet will have a nuance that levels the field of competitors.  It's not difficult, but effective.  Everyone has an equal opportunity to win the Grand Prize or any other prize/award.  You'll learn about it when you go to open the second of three lock boxes.  Yes, the competition puzzle will have three lock boxes.  The Competition Sample has only two!
