I struggled with clues, but I had a lot of downs that helped me finish it in one session. A very satisfying puzzle. After reading the comments above, and then passing the clues one after the other, I can understand that this riddle was harder for many solvers than the normal backpager. But the clues are all fair. A puzzle like this, combined with the full Deep Threat review, offers a great chance to learn how to deconstruct a clue and create an answer. To learn to recognize the keywords that order the ground to do something. To learn to “read” a clue instead of reading it as a whole sentence. Keep it up. Thanks to ProXimal for a great puzzle, to Deep Threat for the review and to everyone who commented. Play well kids and I`ll see you all on Monday But having a group of setterns, with heads working in different ways, means we`ll have a reach, and some of us will be more suitable than others. There are crucial words from some Setters that I find impenetrable, but I see comments here that they provide many other fire extinguishers. It would be weird not to publish it anymore just because I happen to don`t like it.
I found this quite graft, but I succeeded in the end and I must say that it contains a number of masterful indications from which it is difficult to get fav (s), but I particularly liked 10a, 12a, 21a, 3d and 17d. Thank you Mysteron and DT. Definitely the most difficult puzzle backpage I can remember, and I`m going for a **** with a **** pleasure because it was a pleasure to solve it. Certainly, some of the references in the Toughie standard, for example, were 18d and 21a – in fact, the SW quadrant as a whole. The favorites were the charades 7d and 23a with a special mention for 1a. Thank you for our Setter and DT for the choices. We have listed all the clues in our database that match your search. There will also be a list of synonyms for your answer. Synonyms have been arranged according to the number of characters so that they are easy to find. 1a Approximate for friend in the team in a police department (12) – This is a rather complicated assembly job.
Start with the Roman number for the number of players in a cricket team. Add another word for “friend.” Place latin for “for” before the result. Finally wrap A (from the clue) and the police department around the rest.3d With a series of torches, they chased the people into the pit (9) ORCHESTRA – Hidden in the clue. He managed to unravel a dozen clues without help, but even with markers, he got desperately stuck and had to rely heavily on DT`s indications and advice. On days when I`m not going anywhere, I`m happy to learn things (whether it`s new vocabulary and new synonyms or new crosswords) indications, and I rejoice that if my crossword puzzle capabilities ever improve, there will still be puzzles that interest me. Too many exceptional clues to list them all, but as for our blogger, 1a was my law. It was a real head scratcher that we broke into for a while — closed in a fast frontal stop — ***/ ****. But it`s interesting to note that I only had to use the white space on my printed sheet for a clue (21a). I go with proXimal like Setter, since I found four quadrantial Xs in my solution (1a, 7d, 23a and 18a). Candidate for the favorites – 23a, 27a, 6d and 24d – and the winner is 6d.
Thank you proXimal and DT. Like Bluebird, I was glad it wasn`t just me. Grey, dark and squeaky today, and the weather is no different!! I`m pretty happy that the crossword puzzles were so difficult – he came out much of the day very well. I only had nine answers after reading all the clues — the rest followed very slowly. I never got 26a — stupid, because it was probably one of the simplest — I didn`t think about the right kind of boredom. I didn`t see the Lurker 3D until I had 1a, and they were two of my last. All in all, a very nice and cheerful crossword, that is, thanks to proXimal when he put it, and thank you and a very large amount of respect to DT….
