okay maybe it is
Got stuck for 3-4 minutes(!) on the circles on 17-A. Tough with no crossings :)
Andrew, I was coming here to post the same thing. Those 4 circles were killer for me. That clue doesn't strike me as quite right. Really enjoyed the puzzle and theme though.
Had exactly the same issue as Andrew and Bruce. About 4 minutes going through the alphabet trying to come up with 17A. Although there was an implied additional clue of "Jump ____" for the first four letters, they felt perilously close to unchecked, maybe 1.5 checked. It's ironic because the checkerboard puzzle is in the syndicated papers today, in which a lot of folks complained about unchecked squares, but I didn't have a problem with that one. Anyway, cool idea, just a tad frustrating at the end.
