aight i'm diving in
no 7-letter words containing LOUVRE, MET or MOMA, one with RM ("torment") and one with TATE ("agitate")
haven't looked for 7-letter words containing Rijksmuseum but if you find one i salute you
tbh i don't even see how let down = torment or agitate but maybe i'm just slow
6:13 AM
obviously the art gallery could be part of a homophone in which case the search is less straightforward

@Jafe nor I
@PDT works on my good old four-function calculator. I typed in 9999 * 9999 = and got 99980001, then typed * 9999 = and got an error indicating the number is out of bounds, which I assume means infinite…
@Jafe Met lends itself to homophony
@sean47 !!! hi !!!

"I hear". ...I don't know anymore
Yeah, I've pretty much given up on this C4 (unless, perhaps, another hint is posted).

Q: Help with Star Battle puzzle

gemmabomma I made it through all the easy levels without ever having to consciously divide the whole grid into specific regions. I've seen that this is a common technique, but it confuses me even more when trying to apply. Now I'm trying the hard levels but I am stuck. Please solve this step by step.

2:15 PM
I'm wondering what the overall parsing should be
"it's a let down" can't be the whole definition I think, because let down is a verb so "a let down" doesn't make sense (as opposed to a letdown)
Which raises the question what the heck is "it's a" doing in this clue
fun fact: "it's a" can be a connector but you have to read it in mario's voice

There is an exclamation mark on the end, which often indicates an &lit. So it's quite possible that the entire clue is the definition.
It could be the name of a city, perhaps one that recently lost an art gallery?
Or a museum that closed its art exhibit?
4:40 PM
Ok, I doubt this is correct, but here's my attempt:
A (https://www.etymonline.com/word/a-#:~:text=a%2D%20(3),asexual%2C%20amoral%2C%20agnostic).) (without) + LOUVRE sounds like ALLUV, + I and A from "it's a" to make ALLUVIA, which is sand and gravel "let down" from flowing water or ice.

4:56 PM
I had thought of -luv- too but thought it as unlikely afterward
I also wondered if "let down" was an indicator (reversal, perhaps)?
But then "I hear" or "I hear without" would be the most likely definition, which doesn't seem likely.
