Crosstmas Chrisword

The last one of 2018 from our resident (he doesn’t actually live with us) crossword producer, and he’s in full festive swing.

 

Loads of cheesy Christmas clues in there, which I’m not going to get involved with, but I think Yule enjoy this one.

Don’t call me shorty

Here’s November’s 6000 miles…  crossword puzzle for your entertainment:

Many thanks to crosSWORD DEVLIN for this slightly harder than usual episode.

Belated puzzle

This month’s 6000 miles… crossword was delayed by technical issues. rosswording is not affected by the wind. My cache was full. Or… something.

 

However, it’s here now and you can test yourself against SwordDevlin, who I last saw downing his 17th G&T at that party on Saturday night.

Octobers’s CLUE OF THE MONTH™ is 5 DOWN. Obviously.

Saturday morning

If the weather forecast for Cape Town is to believed (and hey, it’s only wrong half the time), this morning is set to be properly chilly.

May I therefore advise you to curl up with a nice warm device (careful now), some coffee and a cryptic crossword, courtesy of 6000 miles… resident crossword compiler?

Clue of the month for me has to be 16 Down:

Small elf that is shot egotistically.

Because using a narcissistic sniper has always the best way to get rid of human-shaped supernatural beings from Germanic mythology and folklore.

Enjoy!

Fresh from The Times of London

Well… not quite.

But CrosSword Devlin (the guy what does the 6000 miles… crossword) does publish his work in other esteemed publications, including (but not necessarily limited to) Cape Town’s Funny Money.

I’m just telling you this so you understand that you’re getting top quality craftsmanship each month; and August’s offering is no exception:

Check out that clue on 1 down: “Waterproof mammal” – I mean, all mammals are intrinsically waterproof, so there’s clearly more thinking you need to do here – but just think of the infamous snowmobile joke and you’ll be well on your way.
