PS – the Times Crossword category has been put on ice till further notice. We kinda lost our quorum, on top of The Oz upping the price and/or duffing the grids, like last Friday. (Not a good habit for any paper to develop.)
Time poverty is the other issue. Or selfish jet travel to exotic locations (I’m turning a little smaragdine here…) So instead, if you feel the itch to solve a cryptic, what say we give the Guardian setters a crack this week? Here’s the link, and the forum is below. By and large the opening grid belongs to Rufus, and God knows where after that. Hop aboard.
And I vote we lift the Spoiler rule – though we keep a cautious etiquette. Tell us what’s good, who’s hot, the mehs, the golds, the huhs etc – and chip in when you can.
