Never knowingly undersolved.

Today’s (25/11) Indy by Phi

Posted by Admin on November 25th, 2011


From Kathryn Friedlander and Philip Fine at the University of Buckingham:

In 2010/11 we invited a number of crossword solvers to take part in recorded trials at Buckingham, during which they solved a cryptic crossword while commenting on their progress out loud. This crossword has been published today in the Independent newspaper as ‘Cryptic Crossword 7385 by Phi’.

In order to gain a richer understanding of the particular dynamics of this puzzle, we are inviting comments on it from all solvers who tackled the published version on or shortly after Friday 25th November 2011.

What the survey involves:
You will be asked to complete a brief questionnaire about the crossword and your own level of crossword solving expertise. It need only take a few minutes of your time. If you would like to take part, please click on this link: For more information, contact us at kathryn{dot}friedlander{at}buckingham{dot}ac{dot}uk.
