Financial Times 14,781 – Dante

Posted by Sil van den Hoek on 27th November 2014

Sil van den Hoek.

Monday Prize Crossword/Nov 17

For some reason I didn’t find this Dante crossword as enjoyable as its predecessors. Hard going in the CD department and occassionally things that I found a bit debatable. A pity that the J is missing, otherwise this puzzle would have been a pangram.

Financial Times 14,785 by HAMILTON

Posted by Turbolegs on 21st November 2014

Turbolegs.

I found today’s offering from Hamilton tough going. Slow progress for most part, having to slowly chip away at clues sprinkled across the grid. Still have a couple of clues / parsing that require improvement (apologies for this!). Seemed to have a more-than-average number of island references in both answers and clues – anybody have any idea why?

Financial Times 14,779 by WANDERER

Posted by Turbolegs on 14th November 2014

Turbolegs.

Excellent offering from Rurouni (look it up!!) today. A rich variety of clues spanning the entire spectrum of easy write-ins and really difficult ones to crack. I made quick work of the top half and then went plodding through quicksand as I finished the lower half.

Financial Times 14,769 – Dante

Posted by Sil van den Hoek on 13th November 2014

Sil van den Hoek.

Monday Prize Crossword/Nov 3

After last week’s tour de force by Gaff, back to normal. Normal? I thought this puzzle was clearly at “the easier end of Dante’s spectrum”, that is, if there is such a thing. Others may disagree but I breezed through this at a, for me, unusually high speed.
