## Beelzebub 1,261

Posted by Simon Harris on 11th May 2014

This seemed to be around the middle of the difficulty range for Beelzebub, with lots of interesting new terms to pick up, and hopefully remember for future reference.

Another solve of two halves for me, almost literally.

This seemed to be a solve of two halves for me. Progress was quite smooth until the last half dozen or so entries, whereby I had to hit the Chambers search pretty hard to get finished. Still, a few new words were learned in the process, which is no bad thing.

After several weeks of having to blog puzzles that had me wondering aloud whether I’d forgotten how to even solve them, this was a bit of a relief.

It comes to something when Beelzebub is the easiest of the three Independent crosswords one has to blog on a given weekend.

After a few rather challenging weeks on the trot, this puzzle seemed a little more tractable. In fact I was back to my old tricks of thinking I’d finished the whole thing unaided, then realising I’d a single square wrong.

Another quite tough week, I found. I had barely half the grid filled before reaching for Chambers. That helped with confirming 16, 24 and 28 and things started to fall in quite smoothly from there on.

Another very tough week, I found. Let’s hope it’s not just me losing my faculties.

A very challenging puzzle which saw me struggling to finish it throughout the week. Several (for example 1 across and 17 across) took quite some time to work out, but I hope I’ve managed to understand everything this week.

Just the one I can’t explain this week, which admittedly is often the case. 31 across has me beaten so I’ve reproduced the clue.

The usual top quality puzzle from Beelzebub. I didn’t find anything too problematic in there this week, and I think I’ve been able to explain them all.

A very entertaining puzzle this week, I thought. There were plenty of unfamiliar terms and spellings, though they were all well signposted, meaning that while a fair bit of confirmation was needed from Chambers, I managed this in one sitting.

As if this week’s IoS crossword wasn’t enough of a challenge, this seemed to be quite a tough week from Beelzebub too.

A two-sitting solve this week, with the Chambers app getting a thorough workout towards the end.

All relatively straightforward and unambiguous this week, I think, though no less enjoyable for it.
