Q: Rullo solving strategy for 2-4

MatHow to eliminate/nominate candidates without guessing? For the 3s it's quite easy because of the odd numbers but how to get further?!

 
6:29 AM
@EricTressler Possibly MA(MM+O)TH (def: enormous)? With 'around' => 'a round thing' => 'O'
 
That sounds good. The distance could also be "0 mm around". It doesn't get smaller than that, although it's arguable whether that's a distance at all.
 
7:54 AM
It would be a perimeter
 
I meant that 0 or 0 mm is a distance of zero or no distance. The "around" just reverses the cryptical reading O MM here. (But perhaps Alconja's explanation is the intended one.)

Q: Better get Meta

AstralbeeTo say it started with a kiss is quite misleading and remiss, and so these words I must retract, it's quite the opposite in fact. Take the answer now in mind and think of that beguiling line If it were true then, for the win, strike the key used to begin.

However, this is not your average dropquote. You will be given an 11x11 and 10x10 dropquote which will surely both pose a...

@Alconja that's correct
 
CCCC: About when? About now! ...makes good sense. (9)
 
12:01 PM
@Alconja I think it's RE + AS + ON + IN + G.
(But if I interpret "makes" as transition between wordplay and def, the G has crossed the border. Or it does double duty.)
 
12:26 PM
@MOehm Nope. I've been a little loose with some of my definitions, but i think it's all a fair/valid.
 
Okay, back to the drawing board then. Pity, I liked the one-to-one correspondence of words to pieces of the alleged solution.

@Mithrandir Is it missing boldface markup on one initial letter-space?
And is it missing something after "WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE"?

(I think the answer to the second of those questions is no, btw.)
