In twisted celebration of the recent World Cup win, resident crosswordist SwordDevlin has come up with a rugby-themed crossword.
I don’t really understand rugby or crosswords, so this one clearly isn’t for me, but you can have some celebratory fun with it.
My favourite clues this month are the ones that don’t remind me of the score in the final. There aren’t many.
Hands in the ruck, Green 6.
Not much to add here, as I’m already SOOOOO far behind with my to-do list for today. So here’s another chance to test your lexicographical skills with this month’s Crossword from SwordDevlin:
Clue of the month is obviously 16 Down. Obviously.
There’s a big egg-chasing tournament about to start in Japan this week, and what egg-chasing tournament worth its salt doesn’t have a egg-chasing themed crossword on an obscure blog 14,729km away to celebrate its opening?
Not this one.
Have fun on the puzzle, enjoy the rugby, and may the best team win – and if not them, then England or South Africa.
Crossword’s back, tell a friend.
With apologies to Eminem, although actually telling a friend about 6000 miles… is always welcomed. Not always by the friend, sure, but you can’t have everything.
Yes, after a break of a couple of months, during which time we were literally inundated with letter, the 6000 miles… crossword is back.
With many thanks to The Compiler G-man Devlin. Favourite clue this time around? 2 Down:
Empty church by the ocean entered by the Spanish football team.
I didn’t get it. I still don’t.
UPDATE: Incoming from The Compiler: ‘Empty “church” = ch + ocean = sea; entered by “the” Spanish = el = ch(el)sea = football team.’ [blowing a kiss emoji].
Slightly belatedly, here’s May’s crossword.
I’d like to say that we left this one unpublished until now so that you could enjoy it with a glass of Cape red in front of a roaring fire, while the rain lashes down outside, but actually, there was just a bit of an oversight and it just didn’t get uploaded on time.
Still, I suppose that if I don’t tell you that, you’ll never know.
