Turbolegs.

A brilliant stunner of an FT challenge!! Wanderer – If you are reading this, take a bow! I dont think I can adequately extol the attributes of this puzzle but suffices to say that I shall eagerly await more grids from this setter.

Exactly the same grid as last week’s prize puzzle, different setter yet more or less similar level, quality and enjoyment. For which many thanks to Crux.

Turbolegs.

Magwitch, this Friday at long last ! She brings this work week to a close with a gentle and relatively straightforward challenge, which in keeping with her inimitable style, has several smooth and clean surfaces with a whiff of inventive constructions.

Financial Times no.14,829 by Flimsy

Posted by Ringo on 15th January 2015

Ringo.

Turbolegs.
