This puzzle:

Rows: 15, Columns: 15, Words: 76, Blocks: 40 Missing: {JQ} Spans: 2 This is puzzle # 26 for Ms. Michaels. NYT links: Across Lite PDF

Andrea Carla Michaels notes: Back to MALT, MELT, MILT, MOLT, MULT. I wanted MELTINYOURMOUTH, but the rule seems to be to use ONES. Not sure why and I got some grief about that. Lucky that MILTONBRADLEY was 13 and I like that it was a board game company, which seemed complementary to crosswords. I love all games.
