i Cryptic Crossword 2228 Phi

March 30, 2018

Phi on Friday, odd, so there must be a reason, and there is. This was originally printed on Good Friday 2014 and that’s where the theme lies not that I or RatkojaRiku in his blog over on Fifteensquared spotted it.

Quite a straightforward puzzle I thought, the only question mark was for the “cry”in  20ac. Most of this was completed while I was in A&E waiting for my wrist to be checked after crashing my bicycle yesterday and it was just the unfamiliar terms at 7dn and 14ac that I was left with but both of these were solvable from the cryptic with a little thought.  Enjoyable though this was nothing really stands out as exceptional but I thought this was clever.

    Ouch. I hope your wrist is back to normal soon. This puzzle struck me as an easy one for Phi, and it seemed pretty clear that there was some sort of theme going on, not that I really cottoned on to what it was. My favourite today was 15d.

    Yep, missed the theme, despite knowing there would be one. Doh. Easy indeed for Phi… An enjoyable bank holiday diversion. Hope the wrist’s better soon!

    An echo to the sentiments of Jon and Batarde. Get well soon!

    Good Friday is ‘Good’ as in the sense of holy. Clearly, as was pointed out on the other channel, anything but a good day for Jesus in its more usual sense.
