Puzzles from Cypriot, Knut, Ifay and Wiglaf…
Hamish, Is it probably me but I seem to have missed the solution to the perimeter puzzle from a couple of months ago set by Atlas, can someone point me in the right direction please?
I think it got missed out because of the annoyance with the wrong grid. Here’s the solution; I’ll get the grid published this coming issue.
Perimeter quotation: “An expert is one who knows more and more about less and less.” (Nicholas Murray Butler).
1 ALSATIANS*, 2 NOB(rev)+VI+V+ANT, 3 Homophone CHAPLAIN, 4 DUOMO, 5 ERSON, 6 LEN GORE*, 7 EXIST, 8 GO, 9 Initial letters, 10 NOTLLEGIT*, 11 Hidden backwards, 12 d/d, 13 LL+I+A, 14LUCK, 15 d/d, 16 OCH+RE, 17 d/d, 18 TORIESHOPE minus E*, 19 UM in BRASH*, 20 FRIGID minus F, 21 AS IN ROMAN*, 22 S+CUTTING, 23 Hidden, 24 TU+ELL(rev).
Thanks Hamish, it was the perimeter quotation I was looking for which completely defeated me, at least Araucaria always gave a word pattern to help us on our way.
Does anyone know an easy way of printing the monthly crosswords after downloading preferably on one sheet of A4. I have been using scissors and glue to produce a single page from two A4 printouts.
Do you mean from a subscription which you get by email, Robert?
Took me an age to work this out! I can’t seem to paste an image here, but I do:
Pages per sheet: Custom: 2×1
Page order: horizontal
Flip on long edge
This probably varies with printers etc. I’ve also found different PDF readers give different outputs. But the above works for me, each side contains a grid and the right clues for that grid!
From my Mac I print the five puzzles single sided on five A4 sheets (I re-use old printouts with a blank reverse page) with the following settings:
Paper size: A4
Pages per sheet: 2
Print pages: from 4 to 13
Each page contains the grid with the clues below, as with the printed magazine. I read the editorial pages and the solutions from the screen.
