    Did about a third of that one, got lured down the rabbit hole of going through pages of forum posts for inspiration, and just came to a dead mental end (plus wasted an hour of work time!) Grrr!

    Nice one Hannah, I really enjoyed that. Loved the forum references. Strangely, the one that took me the longest was the three-letter word 🙂

    Damn, that crossword was harder this week.

    Was it too hard? Maybe anagrams are too much online, and better suited to when you’ve got pen and paper in hand?

    I really struggled with some of the crossword, but got there in the end. A few had me kicking myself (5 down in particular). Long time since I actually finished a crossword!

    One clue left and I’m doing my own damn head in…

    Which one @pyro ? I’ll give you a hint!

    20 across @stwhannah – I’ve been scribbling letters on paper in random orders for an hour and nothing works! Gagh! 😀

    Bug report: Prompted by @Pyro’s post, I wanted to go and see what 20 across was but I can’t go back and look at the crossword, because it is obscured by the dialog asking me to enter my details – which I did yesterday when I completed it the first time. I don’t want you to think I’m so desperate for the hat (although I would like it) that I’m entering every day!

    And another one: I entered my details again and then clicked ‘Back to puzzle’ but that just executed a ‘back’ for the whole page, leaving me once more with the prompt to enter my details.

    That was a print out and fill it out the old-skool way for me. Tough, but really enjoyable!

    @Pyro you really will kick yourself… who makes maps?!

    F’s sake. Took me 3 seconds after you said that, Hannah. Was getting sucked into other avenues to describe a map maker – and I’m an orienteer and map geek….

    @pyro that one had me stumped until I realised that I’d picked the wrong words for the anagram. You only need 2 words to make 2 new words IIRC. Did take me longer than last week. Good to see different styles of clue too. Alot of them had me going ‘but that was so obvious’ after a fair while of trying completely the wrong thing.

    Well, I’ve had another bash, and got them all apart from 2 and 3 down, which have me totally flummoxed!

    Got ’em!

    Nice work @stwhannah 👍
