Simon Crackingthecryptic is solving a crossword puzzle and that's uh

That's not... none of these solutions make any sense to me

@socks is it one of those... what do they call them, cryptic crosswords? esoteric crosswords? the ones where they intentionally make the clues as opaque as possible, and expect you to use your knowledge that the clues are very opaque to help you solve it


@Felthry @socks the defining characteristic of a cryptic crossword is that part of the clue defines the word, and the rest of the clue is wordplay that constructs the word

they're really cool but i'm not good at them
