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.
