Financial Times 14,755 / Redshank

Posted by Gaufrid on 17th October 2014

Gaufrid.

I found this rather tricky in places but got there in the end. There were a few ‘entry’ clues that could be written in quickly but the majority required some thought, particularly for the parsing.

Financial Times no.14,754 by Peto

Posted by Ringo on 16th October 2014

Ringo.

A puzzle easy enough to be completed in half an hour on a rainy Thursday morning by a man with a hangover – which is lucky, because that was exactly what I needed.

Financial Times 14,745 – Dante

Sil van den Hoek.

Monday Prize Crossword/Oct 6

With Dante one knows what to expect but while most of the solutions went in smoothly, a few others made me decide that this puzzle was a bit of a mixed bag. I am afraid that I even failed to complete the crossword in a proper way due to 8d.

Financial Times 14,749 / Falcon

Posted by Gaufrid on 10th October 2014

Gaufrid.

When I tried to download this puzzle on my way to bed in the early hours of this morning the index page linked to a Sudoku, which was not what I was looking for! Fortunately this error had been corrected by the time I got up.

Financial Times 14,739 – Mudd

Sil van den Hoek.

Monday Prize Crossword/Sep 29

After a string of Dantes, Cruxes and Falcons it was nice to have this setter for a change. No Mudd without bums or buttocks (and so it was) but the most amusing clue was surely 26ac.

With only a handful of entries during my first pass through the clues I thought I might struggle a little with this one but I then made steady progress and completed it without too many problems.

Financial Times 14,733 – Crux

Posted by Sil van den Hoek on 2nd October 2014

Sil van den Hoek.

Monday Prize Crossword/Sep 22

Fine puzzle by Crux with only a couple of sighs in the CD department. Curiously enough, this crossword has exactly the same grid as the one that precedes it (Mudd’s prize puzzle, blogged by Pete Maclean below).  Not really important, just an observation.
