Puzzle 3 by Rodolfo



Skipjack always provides fresh and entertaining puzzles and his third offering is no exception. Soup is back with an alphabetical jigsaw which presents the clues as rhyming couplets in the way Araucaria used to. That is quite an achievement! Maize provides us with another very enjoyable puzzle brimming with inventive ideas. Lohengrinís excellent debut puzzle is very tightly clued and an example to setters everywhere. Eustonís second puzzle boasts super-smooth surfaces and a variety of very clever clueing devices.
The second puzzle from Rodolfo has a slight theme and is a good example of precise clueing. Bombadil makes his first appearance here. His puzzle is a paragon of accuracy and fairness, and also jolly good fun! Windsurferís third puzzle is a very enjoyable challenge with a ghost theme. Wiglafís puzzle is conclusive proof that it is possible to be very creative while adhering to Ximenean principles. Eustonís third puzzle is challenging with some very ingenious misdirections. Bear has produced a very enjoyable debut puzzle which is great fun to solve. Wolfgangís puzzle is also a debut which shows that he has a good feeling for invention and technique. Another new setter, Starhorse, has provided a very entertaining puzzle with extremely neat wordplay and nicely deceptive surfaces. Barmecideís puzzle, another debut, is a challenging alphabetical jigsaw with a difference. In another promising debut, Clyde has given us a very entertaining puzzle with some amusing surfaces.

New Rodolfo’s witty and entertaining third puzzle contains some very amusing political satire.

These crosswords show that there are some excellent new compilers around, and I wish them all luck with their compiling careers.
