Author(s): The Times Mind Games

Hobbies, quizzes & games

A brand new series of 80 puzzles from The Times adapting the cryptic puzzle for those with a hectic lifestyle and schedule. Ideal for those starting out with cryptic crosswords, and those who'd like to tackle the main puzzle but feel daunted, or who can perhaps only solve a handful of clues. Appearing Monday to Friday in the puzzle pages of Times2, this crossword has a reduced 13x13 grid size and reduced difficulty too, the intention being to encourage people to take their first steps in tackling cryptic crosswords. And also to cater for those of us who have limited time to devote to our favourite pastime and need a ready-made set of puzzles that is solvable in a short space of time. In addition to the 80 puzzles there is a sample Quick Cryptic followed by a list of answers with detailed explanations of all the clues. All other solutions, should they be needed, are at the back of the book as usual!
