  1. Super Saturday Stuff thank you Boaz. Lots and lots of favourite clues but my top favourites are 2d, 6, 17d and 18d. Not so sure about 10a, though, particularly if Prolixic is looking for clues to illustrate :D

  2. Excellent stuff Boaz, definitely NOT 16a!
    Agree with crypticsue’s favourite but I like 10a as well, but agree an illustration will be hard to resist!!!

    Many thanks for the entertainment.

  3. A sparkling end to the year! Many thanks Boaz. I, too, loved 17d and 18d, closely followed by 6d.

  4. Followed the recommendation from CS on the back-pager and had a go at the NTSPP for the first time for ages. Very enjoyable!

    Favourite: 17d. Looking forward to the explanation of 29a.

    (Being pedantic (or wrong?) – Should there be an apostrophe in 8d?)

  5. Ahem. My bad with the apostrophe. Mortified! Many thanks to Prolixic for the top notch write up and choice illustrations, and to anyone who took the time to give it a bash. Also to CrypticSue for the recommendation on the big page!

    Have a great New Year everyone!
