Financial Times 14,586 by HAMILTON

Posted by PeeDee on 2nd April 2014

PeeDee.

I have not blogged a Hamilton puzzle before.  I filled the grid well enough but I am clearly not thinking on Hamiltons wavelength as there are several clues that I can’t quite come to grips with.

Financial Times 14,582 / Falcon

Posted by Gaufrid on 28th March 2014

Gaufrid.

A very gentle stroll today requiring, according to my notes, only a single pass through the clues. Not enough of a challenge for my liking but eminently suitable for tyros (provided they like anagrams, of which there are plenty).

Monday Prize Crossword/Mar 17

Yes, the first word of the first clue was “Bottom” but other than that this was a smutfree crossword by one of the UK’s favourite setters.

(Please click here for this same blog but with a picture quiz added. Please do NOT post hereinbelow any comment relating to the picture quiz. Thank you.)   A straightforward puzzle, until left with a couple in the NW quadrant, which took slightly longer, and specifically 2 down, where I had to seek professional help to parse the answer I had.  Thanks for that help.  And thanks to Jason.  Definitions are underlined in the clues.

Financial Times 14,576 by GAFF

Turbolegs.

I had to attempt this puzzle in 2 parts – once at the start of the day and again, after I had finished at work. Unfortunately, I still havent been able to successfully get around a couple of clues, the answers for which I am sure are quite easy to crack. Nevertheless, what I indeed managed to solve was very enjoyable and was taxing just to the right extent. 18ac and 17d are  to be finished.

Apologies for not finishing this before putting it up (would love to have been able to spend more time on this before blogging the complete puzzle but wont be near a computer for another three hours).

Financial Times no.14,575 by Sleuth

Posted by Ringo on 20th March 2014

Ringo.

One of us – either me or the FT crossword – was a bit zestless this morning. No real complaints, but not Sleuth’s most dazzling performance.

FINANCIAL TIMES 14570 by WANDERER

Posted by Turbolegs on 14th March 2014

Turbolegs.

I am not sure how this is going to show up on the site – PeeDee’s tool was thwarted by a typo in the FT today (ACROSSs being the culprit) and therefore I have had to resort to manually typing everything up here. Kindly bear with the unjustified text if it so appears.
