Well I loved it - a cracking puzzle from Elfman with some really interesting ideas. I loved the way that the message was hidden, although I initially messed this up by reading it as "clues not starting..." so I got myself into a bit of a tangle. Luckily I could see enough of the old favourite “highlighted” in the message that I did have to be able to see my error. This more flexible method of hiding the message then allowed a rather super set of normal clues to be written, I thought.
I did very nearly gave up on the grid search as I just could not see anything at all, however hard I looked, and then the countdown sequence suddenly jumped out at me.
One of my favourites of the year so far, and what I liked most was that it kept me entertained and guessing right to the very end. Thanks Elfman.
