Doing A Kriss Kross 16

On Friday evening, I realised that it had been a long time since I had done a Criss Cross (or Kriss Kross) puzzle.

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.

Criss Cross

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.

Criss Cross

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.
