i Cryptic Crossword 1365 Klingsor

June 25, 2015

More than a little tricky today, I’d say, and to be honest a bit of a grind. I’m not sure I would have persevered if it wasn’t for the blog. I suppose this is the i catering for all solving abilities, but I suspect many most solvers wouldn’t have had the time to get very far with this.

COD? 8d – ‘Crows over beheading of minor criminal (9)’.

Here’s the 2010 blog:

    No good for anyone needing to do it in their break time and get a blog out by lunchtime! 😉
    But today I fortunately had a bit more time on my hands and loved this. Full of creativity and definitely 23a. Favourite clues 6a, 9d, 19d, though I think Klingsor himself admits to struggling with writing straight cryptics – like 11a and my LOI 28a.

    I really enjoyed this puzzle too, one of the wittiest ones in the i recently. A few audible chuckles today, which ought to cement my reputation as the local madman since I was sitting on a bench in the park at the time. 🙂

    I’m with you on this one, jonofwales – my girlfriend and I have just come back to, and finished, this one (long after finishing today’s Friday one) very late. Enjoyable in places, but too hard for me in others.
