Although this is supposed to be a Friday puzzle, many people are not familiar with the idea of metapuzzles. If you are, feel free to skip to the bottom block of text.
Often in puzzles like these, there are puzzles called “metapuzzles”. These are puzzles that take a lot of answers, and has a new one word answer.
Here is an example:
One would be given these words and need to find an answer. So first, you might notice that each of these words has some letter way more than usual. For example, “Voodoo” has 4 ‘o’s in a 6 letter word! This seems significant. Taking the letters that appear the most in each word gives M-O-D-E, and since the mode is the most common element of a set, this is a suitable answer.
If you solve each meta, you can choose some puzzle type or variation you’d like to see me make on this blog. To start, enter the word “mode” with no caps under the page “Meta 1” under “Menu” in the top right corner.
