    Completed today’s Guardian cryptic! Yeah! Only had help from the crossword solver for a couple of things, and even then they only helped with half the clue.

    dont tell me you got TERMAGANT?

    I definitely had to use the solver for that one.

    Otherwise, Im doing so-so. Some very easy, some far too obscure…
    About half done, but Im not inspired to try and complete it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I did it, no cheating either.

    I got agant from a good social worker, but I had to put T_R_AGANT into the solver. So half a victory.

    Are you doing them online? The best crossword website I’ve seen, and they have more online than they do in the paper.

    Contrary to popular belief I get the Guardian delivered everyday, so Im working on it with quill and ink.

    rich – another reason to bow my head in your presence!

    7 down? I have a solution, but I cant see why.

    The French = LA

    Stout = porter (of extra strength, according to dictionary.com)

    I got the answer then concluded that stout meant a porter.

    I got today’s ‘theme’ straight away but it only gifts you about four or five clues.

    ah. I got “last out” as you did, but i was being a bit dim about “See through” – I got “why” this morning with a clear head ๐Ÿ™‚

    Let me know how you get on with today’s. I have 14 of them done so far.

    ooo, a challenge.

    Let me go and get it. Got to field a few calls but should be free in a bit.

    Be careful with the theme. My dad put me straight, which allowed me to get the rest of the themed ones.

    how many other people are secretly doing the cryptic crossword?

    i’m usually happy to get a few then give up but this thread brought out my competetive streak- stayed up til midnight doin it last night even ignored the footy

    I assume you mean the other bicentenarian ๐Ÿ™‚

    TBH it’s not getting my juices flowing today either. There’s a couple of setters arent there? Sometimes I just cant tune into one of them.

    gissa clue then. I’m not going to buy the Graun just to do the crossword!

    Already done the Telegraph Cryptic, Toughie and the FT today….!

    Flash

    Clicky

    It’s a cool site.

    Btw, completed it in the end – had to use the solver for two.

    Telegraph Cryptic

    An oxymoron surely

    Darcy, get the chip off yer shoulder! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    There are now two in the Telegraph, including the newer Toughie (Dreadful name, good puzzle!)

    Who’s up for today’s Guardian (available online as posted above)?

    I’ve got three already.

    Ara, go on outta that Flash…it’s just not a “cryptic” crossword…or maybe just not “cryptic” enough…not just because it’s the ‘graph. Must have a look at the “toughie” though…is there one online? I’m not going to buy it just to have a go.
