i Cryptic Crossword 1167 Eimi

November 5, 2014

Remember, remember… A fun puzzle from the crossword editor to mark the day. Fairly straightforward, apart from 13d and 22d which had me totally stumped.

COD? 3d – ‘A place like Iowa (4)’.

Here’s the blog from bonfire night 5 years ago:

    Loved this, as with all Eimis, but wouldn’t have got 22d in a month of Sundays!

    13dn I was okay with. Agreed about the obscurity of 22dn though. It’s not as if Eimi was stuck for words that would fit that slot – there were plenty of possible alternatives.

      Yup, I too liked (I)rania(n). Queen Rania voted world’s most beautiful consort or first Lady 2011, apparently.
