Why not have a go at our latest Monthly Prize Puzzle?

You may have been wondering what happened to the puzzle that Tilsit put together for the Birthday Bash back in January.  Well, it turned out to be a much bigger task than he had anticipated.  Several clues were never submitted, some were mislaid and others were not deemed to be suitable.  This did enable Tilsit to acquire clues from several top setters, merge them in with the others, and the result is now here for all to see.  Please note that there is more than one correct answer, but only one of them should be entered.  Take care because if more than one answer is submitted the entry will be disqualified.  Although some answers are already known to some individuals, only three people know all of the answers (and they are not allowed to submit an entry).

The winner will receive their choice of a “Crossword Solver’s” book, kindly donated by Tilsit.

Please note that, due to punitive postal charges, while the competition is open to all, the prize is only available to UK solvers, although a Kindle version may be offered as an alternative.

A review will follow after the closing date (17th June 2017).

The competition is now closed
