Description

Dedicated puzzle enthusiasts see it too often: ho-hum clues like “Toledo’s lake” for ERIE. That means they need to spice up their solving with the pure puzzling pleasure of cryptic crosswords, where each clue offers double the dose of wordplay. To find the answer, it’s necessary to do additional deciphering—recognizing a homophone or working out a charade. And the cryptics in this collection have something more: not only does each clue contain the extra wordplay, but every puzzle also includes a theme that can bend the rules. Special instructions help solvers find their way through the trickery.
