It took me a while to get going on this tricky Quick Cryptic from Rongo. No time from me as I was interrupted, but definitely well over target. Some super clues. Enjoy! Thank-you Rongo.
Fortnightly Weekend Quick Cryptic. This time it is my turn to provide the extra weekend entertainment. You can find the crossword, entitled “All at Sea”, here.
Relatively gentle for Felix, of the usual high quality.
Fairly gentle midweek fare from Mara containing a balanced mix of clues. Expecting the SCC to be somewhat emptier today…
A few tricky ones meant I visited the SCC again on this one.
Hi all. Thanks to Teazel for an enjoyable puzzle. It’s always nice to see 11d and hope it delighted some solvers who hadn’t seen it before. Timewise I was about a minute less than average, or normal for a Monday. How did you find it?
I found Peridot’s first puzzle to be approachable, taking 13 minutes…
I found this on the tricky side, but enjoyable.
12:29. Not as hard as the Orpheus from 4 weeks ago but the two long answers and some less common words, eg 12a, extended my solving time.
I was a little disturbed by not knowing the word at 1ac but things went smoothly apart from a minor hold up at the end on 11dn and 24ac.
