You may remember the earlier post about TEDxAlbertopolis.  It was announced that John Halpern (Dada in the Telegraph and Paul in The Guardian) was to create a  “fiendishly difficult crossword especially for the event”.

I have now been sent a copy of this puzzle, which I am pleased to be able to share.

  1. I’m not sure what the point of this is. I thought it was a major disappointment from one of my favourite setters. I gave up after four clues.

    1. If you read the other post, it was written especially for the event and to satisfy the requirements listed there.. The description in quotes is how it was promoted. I set it up without solving it, Now that I have, I’m inclined to agree with you.

    2. I thought I’d give it a try, despite the “fiendishly difficult” description, expecting to get one or two answers. When I whizzed through in no time flat, I concluded that the promo was deliberately tongue in cheek. A bit if misdirection, if you will. Maybe it will be explained during the lecture.
