Saturday 8th November 2014

Despite once spending quite a bit of time in a house called ‘Asgard’  – the name for the home of the Norse gods – I had no idea that the gods themselves were called the Aesir so, combined with its unusual wordplay, I failed to get 12 across until I could go online and check out A_S_R with ‘Chambers Word Wizard’ – and that always feels like a bit of a cop-out, really.

Never mind, apart from that the rest was all pretty enjoyable, so no complaints.

COD?  7d Wager taken by king – a wager turning up as treachery (8)
