April sees the return of relative newcomer Amos, with her Prize puzzle entitled ‘A pigeon’s tail (sic)’, Araucaria up to his usual tricks, a lovely themed barred puzzle by the duo known as Eclogue, a contradictory puzzle by Castila, and an offering from Soup (me!) somewhat curiously entitled ‘3181519192315164’. Hopefully we’ll see some discussion below!

    Well! Having completed (all but one themed answer in the Prize puzzle – I’ll keep chewing on that) 4 puzzles I turned to Soup and Shock! Horror! Dismay! But I grudgingly started filling it in and found I was getting hooked and by the time I’d finished it I was quite won over. I wouldn’t want to see one every month but I’d be delighted to have another one some time soon. Bravo Soup!

      Ha! I solved one like this myself a couple of years ago and remembered it being really rather satisfying once I’d started to get into it – a completely different way of thinking about things. Putting the grid together was ‘interesting’ – searching for words to fit spaces was nowhere near as straightforward as usual. Glad you enjoyed the others!

        Great Soup but shouldn’t the title have18 instead of 16 for the final r in crossword?! I really enjoyed it and the other puzzles this month. I love the diversity of each magazine and look forward to each challenge. Best wishes. Sarah
