ScrewedUp News – Jun 08

Edition 19

+ – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – +

Just to be awkward, this has now been changed to (3,3,5,4), even though Chambers gives it as (3-3-5,4)!

My entry was also reset as if I had never completed the puzzle!

I bet you thought that ScrewedUp News had ceased publication!  The website has been much better of late, and the last issue was over a month ago.  Today DT 25949 had given the wrong length for 15 across.

The playable and printable versions both give:

15 Event in which competitors run until they drop (13,4)

This is an obvious nonsense, and should really be (3-3-5,4)

    “egg-and-spoon race” is not 15 characters (3-3-5,4) in length?

      Hi Jon
      On the Clued Up site it is printed as “(13,4)”.
