Cryptic #001 - by Andy Hinz


Post by anjhinz »

Hi everyone,

I was bored and decided to try to write a cryptic puzzle today, and actually finished one for once! This is my first attempt, it's a 9x9, and I am not 100% sure if I have followed all of the "rules" correctly or not... I would appreciate any feedback and criticisms about any of it, especially if any (or ALL!) of clues are "invalid" in any way. I hope to keep learning and get better at these, but I had a blast coming up with it.

Enjoyed! Getting the answer to clue 7A, especially, made me chuckle.
