February sees puzzles from Chalicea, Grackle, Amos and Soup. A word of caution: Chalicea’s puzzle is pretty tricky and uses some archaic words. I’d meant the Prize puzzle to be Grackle’s, but for various reasons this didn’t happen, so this month’s Prize is a bit more difficult than usual!

    Chalicea’s puzzle is certainly difficult and will probably not be to everyone ‘s taste. But I for one thoroughly enjoyed the challenge (and learned a lot along the way), so I encourage you to stick with it.

    Too right! At first I thought I wouldn’t get the hang of it but having solved a couple of clues I progressed at snail’s pace! I have enjoyed the challenge and have completed it despite not having a clue what the theme is or rather how I got the end result! Can’t say any more but would love to know what other people think. It is a very different challenge and one which required a dictionary to hand! Lots of new words and I found it quite addictive – even lying in bed trying to get my head round some of the clues!

    If you aren’t familiar with the contents of the unclued light, try googling a picture. That may help explain what you’ve ended up with – and possibly make you admire the construction of the puzzle even more.

      Actually did find a picture and kind of got the connection but I was looking for clues in the finished grid to confirm the unclued light. I found the instructions of the deciphered code unhelpful. Did I miss something?

        There aren’t any clues in the grid other than the theme word, Sarah. I’m willing to bend the rules a little and give hints if need be by email (editor@) so do let me know if I can be of assistance.

    Thanks to a gentle nudge from the editor the penny has dropped and I do appreciate the construction of a remarkable puzzle. Thanks for all the help and encouragement. Sometimes the obvious can be the most confusing!
