Seemed to be the easiest Everyman I’ve done for a while but took a while to be convinced by one piece of parsing.

Everyman 3,560

Posted by Matt on 4th January 2015

Matt.

A steady-as-she-goes Everyman puzzle, with not too much to alarm (or thrill), but a good collection of clues at the shallow end of the pool.

Pierre.

Another excellent entry-level puzzle from Everyman, but with a few unusual features, none of which were Christmas-related.

Everyman 3,556

Another fairly straightforward everyman, with a couple of new words and some parsing that escaped me.

Everyman 3555/23 November

Posted by Pierre on 30th November 2014

Pierre.

I often find with Everyman that his references make me go and look up stuff that I kind of knew, but had forgotten.  So once I’d finished solving the puzzle this morning I spent more time than I should have searching for and learning about novels, songs, films and history.

Everyman No 3,554 (16/11/14)

Posted by Gaufrid on 23rd November 2014

Gaufrid.

Everyman is my usual gentle warm-up early on a Sunday morning before moving on to the likes of Azed, Inquisitor and Beelzebub and today was no exception.

Everyman 3551/26 October

Posted by Pierre on 2nd November 2014

Pierre.

A lot of clever anagrams in this one, and the typically good surfaces that we expect from Everyman.  One or two tricky ones, though, where I for one needed some crossing letters before I could fathom what was going on.  Good job those of us in the UK had an extra hour in bed.
