Puzzles from Chalicea, Atlas, Castila and Soup.
The grid for Chalicea’s puzzle got replaced at a very late stage after I’d done the test solve, and the central ring is out by two clues. There should be a vertical line all the way through all rings at 12 o’clock, and clues 1-4 should share a letter, 5-8 and so on.
Sorry Hamish, me again! I’ve progressed to the Araucaria puzzle and seem to be missing the Double clue for 12,14Across
Can you provide please?
Hm – I don’t see those before they go to print and they are taken straight from the archives. Not sure what has happened there – will ask Christine.
I’d really like to have the 12 and 14 across clues – I like the idea of tiny hammer! Woke up last night still juggling letters – not good! I thought I had cracked Chalicea but it’s driving me mad with such a small grid and I’ve still got one on the brain with no answer. I’m going to tackle Castile while I’m still in festive mode.
Happy new year
Judging from the crossers, “Tiny hammer (4,5) (6)” would do for 12/14.
There’s also a small typo in 6d “from” should be “form”.
Phew! The second time I’ve come here this issue, and the second time I’m confirmed as not going mad…
