The grid starts empty. The solution is a completely filled crossword, with no blank squares.
Suppose the first probe word is TRASH. The R S and T squares become green, the framed yellow squares contain one of T-R-A-S-H but not in that position.
Suppose the second proble word is BRING. The N and R sqares are correct for this word, and the center-top square also contains B-R-I-N-G, but not in that position. The other yellow and green squares without the bright frames are not selected by BRING.
Suppose the third probe word is TREND. All the framed green words are correct and in position for this word. The S is not selected by this word. The framed yellow square at the top-center also contains T-R-E-N-D but not in that position. The unframed yellow and green squares are not selected by TREND.
Guesses continue until the entire grid is filled in. All the elements are real words from the zyzzva scrabble dictionary.
