SQP100 – Quiptic #9

Dear Solvers,

It’s a century, people! Thanks so much for coming by and solving my first hundred puzzles. It’s been really fun making these things and meeting so many amazing crossword folks. It’s made me a better constructor too.

Today’s puzzle is a beginners quiptic with only one wordplay device per clue. I hope it’s fun for everybody! Thanks to Will Eisenberg for the test solve.

In other cryptic news, I had a guest puzzle in The Browser yesterday. If you don’t know already, they offer a weekly blocked cryptic edited by Dan Feyer and created by a roster of some of the best American setters. They’re easier than what I typically offer here but a nice step up in difficulty from my quiptics or the New Yorker cryptic. Here’s a copy of my puzzle if you want to give it a try. If you like it, please consider subscribing. I’ve been a member since day one and love solving it every week!

Take care, enjoy the puzzle, and see you with a summery variety cryptic on Wednesday!
