As a special present for myself, I carved out a little time every day of the last week and put together a cryptic crossword with personalized clues.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about the momentum that good puzzles have and with this one, I’ve paid close attention to the difficulty level of each clue in the hopes that solvers will be pulled along.
Did it work? There’s only one way to find out. Download the puzzle and try it for yourself. Taking a crack at it could be your birthday present to me!
(I'll post the solution in a few days, or you can contact me through the website to get them.)
If you were to be given a personalized puzzle, which words would you expect to see?
Some distinctive characteristic about yourself?
Or something completely different?
