Ringo.

A smart, enjoyable puzzle. The minor grumbles were easily outweighed, for me, by the clever clueing.

Financial Times 14,568 by Io

PeeDee.

A mixed difficulty puzzle from Io, something for everyone.  Things started off quite comfortably in the top left corner and then got progressively harder and harder as I moved through the grid.  There are a couple that I still can’t fully explain, any help appreciated.  Thanks Io.

Turbolegs.

This was a tough grid for a Friday and required several attempts before the grid began to show a semblance of respectability. I still didn’t have enough time to finish and needed Gaufrid’s help to chip in the missing clues. (see entries in red)

Nothing too challenging, one or two minor grumbles, the odd zinger, and all-in-all a pleasant Thursday solve.

Sil van den Hoek.

An enjoyable Crux in his familiar style. Somewhat more double definitions, perhaps, and a mini-mini theme linked to 1 Across (which, unfortunately, I cannot fully explain).

(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.)   At first glance, this looked daunting, with its 15-letter answers round the perimeter.  But it wasn’t that bad, in fact it was an enjoyable solve.  Thanks to Gurney.  Definitions are underlined in the clues.

Turbolegs.

Excellent grid from Mudd – a most enjoyable Friday solve. Interesting clues all around, with some gems for good measure (1ac, 17d  ). More than the average number of double definitions today.

Ringo.

This was one of those terrible puzzles that allowed me to get around three-quarters of the way through, thinking it a complete doddle, then brought me up short with a handful of utter stinkers.

Sil van den Hoek.

Monday Prize Crossword/Feb 17

Once more a puzzle in which about half of the clues were double and/or cryptic definitions. Still an enjoyable solve, though. Many thanks to Dante/Rufus.
