All clues lead to an eight-letter answer that must entered wrapping around one of the black squares, either clockwise or counterclockwise, beginning anywhere. The starting square and the direction can be determined by the overlapping answers. Answers to numbered clues go around that same-numbered black square; where to place the other answers must be determined.
