i Cryptic Crossword 977 Nimrod

March 28, 2014

I found this fairly accessible, for a Nimrod, with only a few I didn’t understand. It helped to solve in a couple of sittings, I found.

COD? I’m going to nominate 18ac, amongst many other good clues – ‘Rotter among Intelligence Men shows what’s not really cricket? (6)’.

The 2009 blog is complete.

    Yes, a really enjoyable challenge. Given all the wonderful cryptic definitions – as in your COD, Jon, – it was very odd to see such an awful supposedly-cryptic clue for 7d. A crowd that an entertainer has enthralled IS a captive audience, surely. Or am I missing something?

      No, it wasn’t a particularly cryptic definition, in retrospect, was it? I think I was just so pleased to solve a Nimrod clue with ease at the time that I failed to notice. 🙂
