Listener 4406 The Bard's Coupling IP: 220.127.116.11 Posted on July 30, 2016 at 04:16:46 PM by Derek Harrison
Just when I was thinking that the on-line solvers would make the Playfair code defunct in crosswords Kea comes up trumps. He had two key phrases that weren't in the lexicon of even Quinapalus! It was a pleasure to get the Scrabble tiles out and work it out the old way.
I'm surprised no one has mentioned this puzzle. I thought this was one of the best this year. The clues were tricky but faultless. At one stage I guessed the clue-writer to be Sabre but when I had BY in my square I knew there could not be another B. I then knew it had to be Kea! Duple bacon indeed!
