Christmas Puzzle 2018

Christmas PuzzleThis year's annual Charity Christmas Puzzle has now been posted, and is available to download.

This, the 28th annual Puzzle that Gordon Gray has set, has a theme designed to help completion and will appeal to people who enjoy doing Crossword puzzles, such as in the Daily Telegraph (though it is not a Crossword puzzle). Puzzlers have plenty of time to find the answers and Puzzles should be returned, with donation, by 27 January 2019.

Gordon has posted Puzzles to those on distribution list, so these should be received in the next few days. Anyone else who would like a copy of the Puzzle can access it from the web at Alternatively puzzles can be collected from St Mary's Eaton Bray.

All the money you donate, except for the prize-money, will go to charity.

Any corrections will be posted to the blog and to the corrections page.

Envelopes went into the post on Thursday, downloads have commenced from the website; so, let our battle of wits recommence!

Should 34a be VUO not BUO ?

December 9, 2018, Malcolm Charles says:

34a is correct with BUO Janet.

Chambers actually gives both spellings of this word.

2 queries - 11B, is the little "c" (which looks like it's in no mans land) an error. 14B, the last _ on my download is showing as a hyphen. Should it be an underscore?

December 9, 2018, Gordon Gray says:

Liz is correct on both counts: a lower case 'c' has appeared, incorrectly as if out of nowhere and the hyphen at the end of 14b should be an underscore. I will update the downloadable copy of the Puzzle. Gordon
