Gambling card game crossword sentiments meaning

Postby Nikolmaran В» 11.12.2019

.

Hello everyone. The style felt unfamiliar; the clues are admirably brief; the setter is not Ray T; there was a slightly odd mixture of some very straightforward ones and a few that completely floored me for ages. Over to all of you now. In the hints the definitions are underlined and the answers are hidden under ANSWER so only do that if you want to see one.

I interpreted the answer to 20a as being an allusion to the symbol for the IoM. Thanks Setter and Kath. I agree about 20a, if Kath is referring to the TT, it lasts about 14 days in all, I think. And did you notice 23a to follow it? We have had plenty of discussion about how this use of GK either heightens or reduces the enjoyment, I am in the latter camp.

For me, a good puzzle is a combination of clever wordplay and amusing surfaces. The other part of the problem was the long anagrams, three of which needed GK in the solving. This restrictwd the checkers for other clues. Thank you to Kath for some much-needed explanations and thanks to the mystery setter. I thought this was firmly gping into the stinker pile, but it turned out to be a crossword of two halves, east and west.

No paricular favourites but 5d completely stumped me. Not the greatest clue. However thanks to Kath and Setter whiever it may be. My brain boiled over 5d until I read the blog, thanks Kath. Thanks again to Kath and Mr Ron. Oh dear — apologies everyone. I regard this as a good natured, grown-up community, not a schoolroom and I think nearly everyone would agree. The first three flew in but after that I slowed to a slowish but steady solve. I really enjoyed it, thought it had a very original and fresh feel to it.

I quite liked 5d, along with 20 and 23a plus 22d. Thanks to our setter — and apologies for not being on your wavelength. Surely a founding father of Marxism and a film regularly voted as one of the best movies of all time are not esoteric though Joycean characters may well be.

Liked 20a ,used to go to the TT often-Hailwood Honda 6 days and bought stickers for my helmet with the three legs and emblazoned motto quocunque jeseris stabit which for some reason I never forget. What Kath said! Having never even seen the book in question, I had no idea about Molly and Poldy until, like others, Google came to my assistance. Then, after staring down 5d for some time, with all the checkers, I had a brainwave ha ha on the surname with Google to the rescue again.

Completed at a fast canter — 3. Favourites — a toss-up between 20a and 23a — and the coin has landed on its edge! Thanks to the setter and Kath — how is it you always seem to get the tricky Thursday puzzles to hint on? Ta to all. I really think that Thursdays have got a lot more interesting since Mr X I presume that this is his joined the back-page team. I ticked 11a, 23a, 25a and 7d but my runaway favourite was the brilliant 5d.

Thanks to the setter and Kath for her usual star act on the blog. The short words flew in but the longer anagrams took a bit of working out.

Unlike some, I thought 5d was a great clue. My favourite though, was the wonderful 23a. Not too fond of 27a. If you come to dinner at Shabbo Towers, you will definitely not be fed in there! A steady completion until 5 down. Apart from these two, enjoyable. But many thanks to Kath for her hints without which I would have been looking at the answers.

To the setter thanks for flooring me do comprehensively. The IOM has Manchester weather, but fewer houses and more sheep. Monaco has the lovely climate, but can you park? Can you buggery! Grand Cayman — you can park, but there is the question of the occasional hurricane. We prefer to talk about people in Alderney in this way!

Many thanks to Kath and Mr Ron. As for GK I rather liked 5d but 11a confused me. With regard to 23a Kath, can I say that as I live in one of these wicked, sinful places not the three legged one your understanding of them is, as you stated, slightly limited. I met the scarecrow as well — got me quite discombobulated. Sorry, not on my wavelength or to my liking today. Sadly I found this all got a bit tedious in the end. Great to see so many enjoyed it, though — variety is indeed the spice of life!

Many thanks to Kath, and to the setter. It is not very often that I make negative comments, but the GK in this one ruined an otherwise good puzzle. I always look forward to the Thursday puzzle, but for me, because of the GK, this was probably the least enjoyable crossword for a very long time.

Sorry setter — not my cup of tea. Thanks to Kath for the review. With the exception of two clues I reckon that this has to be the easiest back page Telegraph crossword puzzle that I have ever attempted. For me 5 down was quite brilliant that was one of my two exceptions I needed electronic help for that one and is my clue of the month, closely followed by 23 across.

The less I say about 11 across the better, except suffice it to say that without Googling Molly and Poldy I could have sat until Christmas and still not worked out the answer. Overall some good fun — thanks to the setter and of course to Kath. Of passing interest Molly and Poldy were two cloned sheep.

Thanks to the setter and to Kath for the review and hints. I thought the general knowledge really spoilt it. The two long anagrams for the film and the agreement took me ages, because I hardly had any checkers. Needed the hints for 21a, could only think of far haven, doh! I had to rely far too much on electronic assistance for my liking.

As others have said, a little general knowledge in a cryptic is acceptable but there was far too much in this one. I liked 25a and 23a. Started like a train and finished like a snail — but still needed several hints to get there.

Thanks to Kath for a heroic blog. Thanks also to the setter. I struggled a bit too. Not helped by putting Val Halla for 23a. Pondered 3d to try Adventure for the second word, then twigged correct answer. I probably stopped reading a year ago!

Yes, three stars for difficulty, perhaps nearing four stars? Whereas the long anagrams are usually a godsend, these proved very stubborn indeed, meaning today they were more a hindrance than a help. Challenging certainly, very pleased to complete. The occasional use of the web soon provides the answer.

My favourite clue was 20a, although it is a chestnut. Thanks to the setter for an interesting challenge, and Kath for her excellent review. I really dislike GK in the crossword. Probably because There are a lot of films and psychologists!

I did get them both eventually but that wore me out so I missed the bird and the haven which annoyed me because I knew them both. Thanks Kath and setter. Wotta strange puzzle! We were treated to easy peasy solves, such as the first three across, and other diabolical ones. I got to the point of just bunging in what fit, e. I thought the anagram at 3d was pretty obvious, another help. I used e-help for 13a, I think I was suffering from fried brain at that point.

I did enjoy a lot of the puzzle, there were only a few brain sizzlers, so not all bad. Thanks to our setter, and gazillion thanks to Kath for unravelling that lot, you must be brilliant!
