It certainly was a long time since I did one on this blog, so thought I would give one a go and then do a 'live' criss cross the following day for the blog to be published at a later date (the post you're reading right now).
I fluffed the first one.
I put it down to rustiness of sorts. After all, I have been playing codewords puzzle almost every day this year. The 'live' codewords was going to be perfect.
Or as close to perfect as I could get.
Here's the puzzle I chose. It was the second in an Asda magazine I bought last December.
The theme was 'Med Hotspots' and was a list of places that can found around the Mediterranean Sea.
I got to work on it and stopped the clock at twenty minutes.
I hadn't completed the puzzle in twenty minutes. It was the twenty minute mark where I noticed that I had once again messed up a puzzle.
I am 0-2 in recent criss cross puzzles. How shocking, eh?
Also - this is the second puzzle in the book. Aren't they supposed to be easier to start with? If so - that shows how rusty I am.
Must. Do. Better.
