Independent 8687/Crosophile

Posted by Pierre on 18th August 2014

Pierre.

The days of the Monday Indy being the ‘easy’ entry to the week seem to have long gone.  I liked this puzzle, and there were enough straightforward answers to get you going; but I found it really tough to finish, and struggled to parse quite a few.  I think I have nailed it all down, but would appreciate a bit of help to make sure that I have explained everything properly.

Independent 8,682 by Hob

Posted by John on 12th August 2014

John.

As the laws of probability dictate, it sometimes happens that it falls to me, the most inappropriate person, to blog this sort of crossword. Hob has given us a crossword based on the 20 and some of the clues refer to the 20 taken literally. Thank goodness for Google, which told me practically all I needed to know about the two types of group.

Independent 8,677 by Dac

Posted by John on 6th August 2014

John.

An unremarkable crossword from Dac. By which I don’t mean that it is less than excellent, simply that it is just as usual. Nice clues, all so far as I can see perfectly sound.

I found this on the easy side for a Dac.

Bertandjoyce.

We found this an enjoyable thematic puzzle and have to congratulate Hieroglyph on managing to get six thematic entries (which occupied twelve of the 29 answers) into the grid without having to resort to too many unusual words.
