Several words overlap other words (havE A Tanga, unTIL The, hoW IT Has).
Several parts of a house are contained in words (cHALLenge, sudDENly...well, maybe that's it).
A number of the letters are invertible (there are lots of "d"'s that look like "p"'s upside-down).
Or maybe none of it matters, and all we want is the shape (I've tried ring, globe, scale, omega...).

wow I'm at a complete loss with this one. Not even really going into a good general direction.

Yeah, I'm thinking it's the last. Notice that the sentences in the outer and inner circles end at the same place and create an opening. I have flipped my laptop upside down and tried squinting. It sort of feels vaguely familiar.

It looks like the keyhole on a bicycle U-lock. Or the "power on" button on the computer.

I was personally hoping it was a snowglobe; very thematic.

Pretty strong hint ahead:

(Edit: Probably way too much of a hint ahead -- look for better ones below. I'll leave this for when you've finished.)

Y'all can thank Ms. Uethym for this one.

Count the number of letters in each word.

I think I'd reclass that one as a VERY strong hint.

I guessed and got it, and I think you're on the right path. If so, truth be told I have a hard time seeing it, to be frank.

This may be a bit too salty, but it's hard to be vague and helpful on this one.

It's round, tasty and a bad pun related to the puzzle's shape.

I don't know...I'd be curious to know what fraction of people would recognize the answer even with that hint. I really have no idea.

Edit: Upon further review, yeah, way too much -- I forgot I was dealing not with the general populace, but with BGGers. It says a fascinating thing about this community that

this particular thing is common knowledge, while "Malcolm in the Middle" is considered out-of-bounds. Quite the opposite of what I'm used to hearing!

Don't worry too much about the meaning of the words. But every word counts.

That did it. But it's only too salty if you can recognize the significance. Thanks!

I have the answer but what does the bottom have to do with it? Is it just supposed to represent an image if you squint?

You can solve it with just the top line. Possibly just the first three words.
