I’ve got x so far but 6d remains unsolved. Most enjoyable – thank you Prolixic.
Think I’ve completed the puzzle although I’m a bit dubious about my entry for 6d but suspect that I’m somewhat short in the ‘toilet’ department.
Thanks for your take on smallest room humour, Prolixic!
This was good fun and relatively light by Prolixic’s standards but, like Spindrift and Jane before me, 6d remains a mystery. I will leave it for a while and see if the penny drops – although I may need to spend one first
What type of clue does Prolixic use in nearly all his puzzles??
Thank you, Sue. At least I’d opted for the right answer but it gets me no nearer all 12 of the solutions required to find the toilets – think I’ve only found 9 answers that I can use.
Ah, yes! Many thanks, Sue.
I was just going over my printout to decide on my favourite clues but found I was ticking too many for their clever wordplay and smooth surfaces, including the 3 letter ones! So just one podium place for me and that is QPP 123
The puzzle contains lots of potential fodder for constructing ‘words’ so I hope I have chosen the correct ones to build my list of toilets…
