You may have missed them, but the last month of Times puzzles has delivered some divine clues. I’ve handpicked a batch below, where you have to figure out the answers. And if you’re feeling game, please try to invent your own clues for the same answers.
Feel free to share insights in the Comments, giving fellow solvers that toehold if they need it. My favourite has to be the five-star Clue 5. Relish:
- Country – pre-eminent one involved in drug crop (5,4) [Times 10007]
- Being on the fiddle, maybe, one’s shady (5) [Times 10027]
- Squatter raised objection – the last stand? (7) [Times 10027]
- Stick hairpiece on back to front (4) [Times 10015]
- Open marriage making one the object of ridicule (8) [Times 10013]
- Who’s ultimately handy in reversing colour? (4)
- One’s pipped by the shortest possible distance (6) [Times 9998]
Share-n-solve. And can you clue any answer otherwise?
