About this deal

I did find quite a few clues that were a bit loose with the “rules” of cryptic clues as I understand them: either the definition wasn’t quite accurate, or the cryptic grammar wasn’t quite right. To build an easy to find question title simply select the paper and quiz, enter the quiz number if relevant and fill in the Publication Date. I actually knew LESOTHO is a monarchy, so that went in easily and parsed UNHINGED the same way as KVa, after squinting at it several times. Azed 2459 - Last Two + Parsing Queries 15a Little old bird tom's sneakily trapped in trough (7) TITM _ _ E I can find Titmice, but that is plural and doesn't parse.

Well after yesterday's mauling by Kite (DNF) I was ready for a more gentle offering from Everyman but it took a good hour to finally complete. This small piece of kit is designed to make building your Quiz, Crossword or Puzzle question more effective.e. standard cryptic puzzles) have been attempted, though almost all have at least one word blank; 5 of the 'Ximenes' puzzles are completely blank, the remainder being solved in varying degrees (but none completely); the previous owner clearly did not stoop to looking at the solution pages! In fact, giving the setter a bit of leeway allows more room for the sort of playful deception that makes cryptic crosswords enjoyable (although to my mind the most satisfying clues are the ones that achieve playful deception while strictly adhering to those rules). This is an extremely popular crossword puzzle in which for sure you will pass some great time and also keep your brain sharp with all the interesting crossword clues found on each day on The Guardian Everyman Crossword puzzles. I send my very best wishes to Colin Gumbrell at this time, as I’m sure do crossword enthusiasts everywhere. It seems like this must be one of those things that shows up repeatedly in cryptics, but if so I’ve never seen it (or, just as likely, have seen it and forgotten).

The Oldie has two crosswords, of differing levels of difficulty, labelled `Genius’ and `Moron’, respectively. Re DRESSING ROOM, I was under the impression that the “board” half of “bed and board” referred to the meals, not the room.A trickier than usual Everyman but not so much so that it would cause too many problems, as there are lots of anagrams and primary letters etc. While appealing to solvers of all levels of experience, the Everyman crossword is often suggested as a good starting point for those new to cryptics, and fledgling solvers will find the solutions notes and introduction to cryptic clue types to be invaluable.
