Financial Times 14,631 – Dante

Posted by Sil van den Hoek on 5th June 2014

Sil van den Hoek.

Monday Prize Crossword/May 26

Financial Times 14,639 by Goliath

Gaufrid.

A definite mixture today with some very easy clues and some that presented far more of a challenge. In fact one (28ac) has defeated me completely apart from the definition.

A pleasant serving from Mudd, thanks to whom for setting a grid which escaped qualification as neither a cakewalk nor a mind-bender. I got through the left half of the grid pretty quickly before losing momentum, thanks largely due to the SE corner (which in my opinion, would have been easy for most others).

Financial Times 14,634 / Neo

Posted by Gaufrid on 29th May 2014

Gaufrid.

I didn’t find this quite as much fun as I usually do with a puzzle from Neo but that is probably just down to the rather gloomy and wet morning today. However, it was still an enjoyable solve with some easy entry clues and some that had me scratching my head for a short while.

PeeDee.

Good fun from Artexlen today.  A relatively straightforward puzzle (for Artexlen) but with a sting in it’s tail.  Thank you.

Financial Times 14,629 by Rosa Klebb

Turbolegs.

Excellent grid from Rosa! I got started with great gusto finishing nearly the entire left half of the grid in quick time, before grinding to a halt. A rough day ahead meant I couldn’t spend anytime on the puzzle until just a short while before this post.

Sil van den Hoek.

Monday Prize Crossword/May 12

Familiar start to the FT week by Dante. However, there is one clue (1d) in which something seems to be missing unless I am on the wrong track.
