A fun and non-competitive workshop for beginners and improvers. The assumption is that you have no knowledge of cryptics whatsoever, but if you do, or if you currently solve the quick non-cryptic crossword, you will progress to the more rewarding world of the cryptic. You will learn the tricks of the crossword trade including the”rules” for cryptic clues, which can be applied to the daily puzzles appearing in nearly all newspapers and enable solving of clues you may have thought impenetrable. Whilst enjoying the delights and quirks of the English language, we will work together solving cryptics from different sources, occasionally delving into the humour, history and personalities of crosswords.
