Hey, cryptic fans!
Thanks for stopping by! I’m dropping a quiptic here for your enjoyment. You know the drill: one cryptic device per clue, and the helper version tells you which one to use. I hope it’s a fun challenge for newcomers and a good speed solve for seasoned folks. Thanks to Will Eisenberg for testing all these puzzles!
If you liked today’s puzzle, and are still easing into solving full-size, harder puzzles, I recommend the variety cryptic that’s coming on Wednesday. It’s a noticeable spike in difficulty, but I’ve taken pains to make this one pretty approachable for the format.
Take care, enjoy the quiptic, and see you in 48 hours with the August variety cryptic!
