i Cryptic Crossword 2609 Dac

June 19, 2019

So Dac, and a pretty gentle Dac at that, so what more is there to say? As good as always, as fair and enjoyable as ever, no vocabulary or constructions for the most part that should throw anyone. I say for the most part because 27ac is a little tricky both in the definition and wordplay, but most solvers will have just lobbed it in as I did because it was unlikely to be anything else.

    All very satisfying; plain sailing almost to the end when 16, 25 and 27 required a little head scratching. I am still mystified by the “wall” in the latter, and would be grateful if people refrained from enlightening me. πŸ™‚

    All very straightforward, and pleasant enough. Struggled a bit in the SE corner, but got there with a bit of e-help, but concur about the parsing of ONE-TWO.

    Nice experience until 16d when I hit a bit of a wall – like a football being bounced back at me by a team-mate – and had to look at a Wordsearch.
