Guardian 26,463 – Pasquale

Posted by Andrew on 8th January 2015

Andrew.

A tough challenge from Pasquale, with quite a few names in the answers, which with the need for some “general knowledge” and a couple of obscure words might not make this to everyone’s taste. Having got that out of the way, I enjoyed it, so thanks to Pasquale.

mhl.

After the slog of the big Christmas crossword, this was a welcome relief – a fun and fairly quick solve, lots of excellent clues as you can always expect from Paul.

Andrew.

Nothing too troubling in this one, with just one (easily gettable) answer that was new to me. Thanks to Qaos for the entertainment, and Happy New Year to all.

Guardian 26450 – Enigmatist

Posted by Andrew on 23rd December 2014

Andrew.

Enigmatist’s name is one that always causes a slight feeling of panic when he comes up to be blogged, but I found this puzzle a very gentle one by his standards. I started at something of a sprint in the top left corner, but it wasn’t a complete walkover, as there was some characteristic deviousness, including an unusual meaning of an unusual form of a word at 22d (new to me, but clearly clued). I can’t satisfactorily explain 26a – no doubt someone wll quickly be able to point out the obvious. Thanks to Enigmatist, and Merry Christmas everyone.
