i Cryptic Crossword 2693 Dac

September 25, 2019

The run of easier puzzles continues with a welcome and thoroughly enjoyable offering from Dac. There’s some debate over on the other side as to whether there’s an alternative, equally valid answer for 18ac, but it’s not one that occurred to me. My LOI was 6d which did occasion a moment’s pause, but the rest went in mainly on checking letters and / or definition, with a bit of the wordplay required here and there. As ever with Dac there’s little to discuss, just because his puzzles are always so consistently good! First in 19d, as I’m still starting with the last down, last in 6d, finish time well under par for the i.

COD? Lots to pick from as always, with my nomination going to 22ac – “Fellow beginning to eat Cheddar sandwiches (6)”.

To June 2015:

    Agreed (esp. re 18ac); I think 22ac was my LOI but it was all done in the office car park by 8.50.

    Nothing to say about this puzzle except that it was excellent as per and done a good deal more quickly than the sudoku.

    Another flawless piece of work from Dac. A real pleasure.
    Put me in the Tiny Tim camp.

    22ac was my CoD too – even though it was also LOI.
