Looks like an easy one this time. Some of you will probably ace it 20 minutes.

Thanks, Syzygy: just about to go to work on it (forget the 40" limit!)

true, quite easy even at my relaxed pace, but can't see the "single square" with "something valuable". Anybody that bit further yet?

It may be easy, but the clues are truly brilliant and the construction is masterful. I have to confess that I didn't notice the pattern till I was finished.

@gk You got me. I can't see it either. Spent my coffee break staring at it.

@Aristo Sounds as if you found it. Do you mean the BIG square?

You're welcome, though I'm not sure to which link you're referring.
Possibly the Wall Street Journal:

No, I now see it was re earlier Harper's.
The search bar here still has a few glitches.

Re this puzzle:

The big X & its centre seems rather obvious, but I was expecting something more.
