So where we are, pilgrims. The start of a brand-new week, starting from zip (in my case), in a game bid to knock off the next six Times crosswords. After my failure to identify the Machurian money of RENMINBI, calling the coinage RENNIMBI instead, I’m back to zero profit.
Yes, true, I did notch up 50 consecutive puzzles along the way, but so can you, drawing on the support circle of the forum below, where no spoilers are blurted, though plenty of oblique hints and nudges supplied. I for one have found constant solace and afflatus from this coterie, and you can too. Starting today, with Times 9028.
So hop aboard and share the pain, the pleasures, the whats and wows, as we begin a new week of Our Troubled Times. (Just don’t mention Shanghai shrapnel, and we should get on famously.)
