Document 5.1: Ordering a Round

You recognize the first puzzle you find: a grid drawn on a bar napkin. "Oh, this is like one of those Marching Bands puzzles!" you say to yourself. "One set of clues whose answers go around the square, each in a separate band, and another set of clues whose answers go across, two in each row. This'll be a snap!" The fact that the back of the napkin has "B66b2aC110a5aA69b7aB2D2" written on it doesn't faze you at all.

Then you find his list of clues. Somehow, you restrain yourself from grabbing a nearby beer bottle and throwing it through a pane of glass.
