Look at the codewords puzzle I did in the Telegraph's All New Codewords book I first wrote about on May 5th.
It took fifteen minutes and fifteen seconds to complete.
I have to pat myself on the back for that result considering these Telegraph puzzles are meant to be more difficult than I am used to. As well as that - they only give two letters to start off with.
If I'm not mistaken - 15:15, for a regular-sized codewords puzzle, is the best time I've had. I started 2021 with a goal to do one in under twenty minutes. I had already beaten that aim in February when I completed a puzzle in just under seventeen minutes.
If you had said I would have done one of these Telegraph puzzles in a little over fifteen minutes, after I first opened the book to see its contents, I would have laughed at you.
