Financial Times no.14,670 by Jason

Posted by Ringo on 10th July 2014

Ringo.

There was something just a bit unsatisfying about this puzzle – it seemed to lack a certain zippiness or precision.

Financial Times 14,665 by GOLIATH

Posted by Turbolegs on 4th July 2014

Turbolegs.

A very entertaining challenge from GOLIATH which required several sittings to fully crack the grid. Frankly, this was a very educational outing where I learnt several new words/phrases (e.g. 16,17ac ; 15d; part of 1d) after having deduced the solution from successfully breaking down the clue. Googling helped with 15d.

Thoroughly enjoyed this !! Thanks Goliath for getting my Friday off to a great start.

Dante in his familiar style? Well, he left most of his cryptic definitions at home this time! However, to compensate that plenty of double definitions and anagrams.

Financial Times 14,659 by FALCON

Posted by Turbolegs on 27th June 2014

Turbolegs.

I cant say I enjoyed this one much – Falcon probably didnt feel like taxing any of us and made it quite easy. Like several grids I have covered before, this one would be just nice for newbies on the FT get started.

Financial Times 14,658 / Artexlen

Posted by Gaufrid on 26th June 2014

Gaufrid.

When I agreed to stand in for Ringo today I was hoping for a puzzle that I could get my teeth into, perhaps a Monk or an Io. It turned out to be an Artexlen, though this proved to be an enjoyable challenge despite there being a few very easy clues. Some other entries however needed a fair bit of thought because there was some inventive cluing as we have come to expect from this setter in his various incarnations.
