Puzzles from Grackle, Phi, Gonzo and Claret.
Grackle’s puzzle’s preamble refers to 26ac. I want whatever Grackle was on – there isn’t one, of course; *30ac* was what he meant!
Thanks. Is 16ac (9) (one word)?
Yes it is.
Phew just finished ‘Who am I really’, definitely one for the Eng Lit majors. Last two were the intersecting 6 and 19, which took a week of staring at even with online help. 6 hasn’t dated well (the place hasn’t existed for 8 years), and even when I finally worked out the definition for 19, the answer didn’t ring any bells or look likely as a real name.
Phi’s puzzle was a doddle by comparison, but none the worse. Slight ambiguity as to the extra word(s) in 23. Nice one.
I’ve been struggling with Araucaria’s myself!!
Wot no blog for August?
Stuck on W and C (which I reckon intersect) in the Alphagammatical Jigsaw. W has two lots of wordplay, yes? Sort of understand the second lot. That leaves C starting CY and I’m stumped.
Having a tricky time of it at the moment, Gonzo – apologies for lack of blog. Which puzzle are you talking about?
2039 Araucaria. I can wait for the solutions, but sometimes they can be gnomic.
I haven’t done (or seen!) the Araucaria – I will have a look.
Got them thanks to a cross-reference and some serious internet wrangling. I’ll be interested to read your thoughts on those clues.
