i Cryptic Crossword 1272 Quixote

March 9, 2015

When I didn’t get any of the across answers on a first read through, and made my first entry at 3d, I figured this was probably going to be harder than average for Quixote. Luckily the rest of the down clues were as accommodating, opening up the grid nicely, for a time that was about par for the i. Lots of new words learnt as ever on a Monday, but the wordplay was friendly enough they shouldn’t have been impossible to fathom.

COD? 23ac – ‘Invites the pals around and remembers the good old days? (5,2,3,4)’.

Here’s the 2010 blog:

    Half too easy, half too hard. Why, oh why can’t I ever seem to enjoy a Quixote puzzle?
