i Cryptic Crossword 1447 Radian

September 29, 2015

A tough one today, themed around 13ac’s. Until I solved that clue I felt that I had little chance, but bit by bit it all fell into place, though it felt more like a chore than entertainment. I don’t generally like crosswords where you need to get the gateway clue to have any chance of making headway, and coupled with some pretty tough clues, and obscurities like Mack for Sennett, it was all a bit much.

COD? 22ac – ‘Championship seed’s access code? (4,6)’.

    I must’ve been in the right frame of mind today, because I enjoyed it: ordinarily I’d be probably be saying exactly the same. 13ac falling into place early helped a lot.

  2. I was somewhere in-between: certainly felt that sinking feeling when so many clues referred to 13, and 13 wasn’t a gimme … but it all did just about go in eventually.
