Financial Times 14,743 / Bradman

Posted by Gaufrid on 3rd October 2014

Gaufrid.

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

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.

(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.)    It’s been some time since I blogged Neo.  Thanks for the renewed acquaintance.  And what’s with the dogs (and a couple of gods/goddess)?  Definitions are underlined in the clues.

Financial Times 14,737 by ALBERICH

Posted by Turbolegs on 26th September 2014

Turbolegs.

Such a wonderful puzzle from Alberich. Pity it wasnt my best day in the sun, especially coming a cropper against the SE corner. Amongst several gems of clues, 26ac was vastly ingenious. Thanks to Gaufrid for sprucing up and providing a backbone to an otherwise ordinary blog. There will be several opportunities to improve upon the parsing below so I hope collectively we are in good shape by the end of the day.

A largely unobjectionable offering from Falcon today – and I learned a new word, which is always nice.

Financial Times 14,727 – Dante

Posted by Sil van den Hoek on 25th September 2014

Sil van den Hoek.

Monday Prize Crossword/Sep 15

This is indeed last week’s Prize Crossword but it wasn’t published in the newspaper itself. The FT mistakingly printed off a repeat of IO’s lovingly made tribute to Robin Williams. So, for those who missed this Dante, it’s available on the FT website and here:  Dante 15 Sep 14.  A mild warning though, as Dante lives up to his reputation with more than half of the clues being CDs and DDs.

Financial Times 14,735 by IO

Posted by PeeDee on 24th September 2014

PeeDee.

Another themed puzzle from Io, trickier than the one I blogged a couple of weeks ago.  There are still some explanations that I am not sure about so any help in getting to the bottom of these would be appreciated.

Financial Times 14,731 by FLIMSY

Posted by Turbolegs on 19th September 2014

Turbolegs.

An entertaining tussle with Flimsy today, thanks to whom for setting an intuitive and approachable grid. No favorite clue here as there were several smooth surfaces. My LOI was 25ac, not because I solved it last, but because I couldnt do any better than parsing it as cryptic definition for the player part of the clue. Perhaps this could be improved upon.
