Posted by Simon Harris on 31st March 2013

Simon Harris.

A fairly tough challenge, I thought. There was plenty to confim in Chambers before blogging, but I think I’ve managed to explain everything this week.

Independent on Sunday 1205 Hypnos

Posted by scchua on 31st March 2013

scchua.

Just a bit harder than the other Hypnos puzzles I have blogged previously. Thanks Hypnos. A few references to the movies, but can’t see any theme though. Definitions are underlined in the clues.  [[The pictures at the bottom have unidentified links to the puzzle.]]

Posted by Dave Hennings on 30th March 2013

Dave Hennings.

For the second month running, I have a crossword that hasn’t got any extra/missing letters/words or misprints. Instead, just eleven words in the perimeter and central row to identify, and something to write under the grid.

Guardian 25,903 / Paul (23/3/2013)

Posted by Gaufrid on 30th March 2013

Gaufrid.

A fun start to an otherwise cold, bleak Saturday morning with snow falling and a near gale force wind blowing. I was fortunate that, as I often do, I tackled the clues in reverse order which meant that I quickly came across, and solved, 14dn.

Eileen.

A very enjoyable puzzle from Paul, which caused a bit of head-scratching in the parsing department but I managed to get there in the end, apart from one clue that I’m not at all sure of. Plenty of smiles and ahas for me this morning – many thanks, Paul

Financial Times no.14,273 by Gozo

Posted by Ringo on 28th March 2013

Monday Prize Crossword/Mar 18

A fairly typical Dante puzzle which can be found here.  That said, not that many cryptic definitions this time. Much to my advantage.
