Something For The Weekend MK2 (just for Flashling!)   2 comments

Well, I’ve been banging away at this all day and, again, it’s a newspaper-destined puzzle that doesn’t quite fit the bill for me. It isn’t too hard – it’s just that the chosen theme isn’t one that will be universally popular. It isn’t specialist, but… oh, just solve it and see. Anyway, my good friend Flashling managed to polish off yesterday’s early offering with indecent haste and wondered what to do for the rest of the weekend, so here we go: http://crossword.info/anaxcrosswords/STFW007 (of course, that should read SFTW but it’s late and I’m tired). Once again, the interactive puzzle has a PDF link if you want to assault a former tree.

Something For The Weekend (slightly early)   3 comments

It’s been a few weeks since I posted one of these – and in fact I didn’t intend to. This was meant for newspaper publication but I’ve held it back because some of the answers are a bit more obscure than I’d like. The interactive puzzle here: http://crossword.info/anaxcrosswords/SFTW006 also has a link to a PDF so you can print it off.

PS: The PDF shows “Telegraph Toughie Sample 3” at the top. Completely ignore that – it’s just something on the puzzle template which I forgot to remove, and nothing to do with the Toughie series.
