Soup Or Symmetry?

by Laszlo Denes / Edited by George Barany

This "late-week level" themeless puzzle features a super-symmetric grid. It was originally constructed in 2013, and we are pleased to add it to our roster of puzzles in Winter 2016. The puzzle's title, a play on the grid design, is evocative of this chestnut. After completing the puzzle (spoiler), learn more about the puzzle by clicking here for Laszlo's "midrash."
