From this week, we shall be blogging the Enigmatic Variations puzzle which appears in the Telegraph. Blogs for puzzles 832 and 833 will appear over the next few days, with 834 appearing the following week. Your bloggers will be Gaufrid and Colin, with a new team member hopefully joining in November.
For those who don’t know what I’m on about, the Enigmatic Variations is an advanced cryptic. That is, the grid has bars rather than blocks, the vocabulary is often harder than in daily cryptic puzzles and each puzzle will have some sort of theme or gimmick which, for example, may involve doing something with the answers before being entered into the grid. In other words, it’s like the Inquisitor puzzle which appears in the Independent and the Listener, which appears in the Times.
If there are any solvers of the puzzle out there that would like to help out on the blogging side, please drop me a line: [email protected].
