SQP129 – Variety Cryptic #15 – “Present Day”

Welcome back, cryptic fans!

Today’s offering is another fairly gentle variety cryptic which I hope suits your December mood. Thanks to Hayley Gold and Nate Cardin for the test solve!

If you like the variety cryptics here at Square Pursuit, I invite you to subscribe to Square Chase, in which I will provide a fresh variety cryptic on the 1st and 15th of every month in 2022. Think of them as a continuation of what I’ve been posting already, with difficulties ranging from easy to moderate and even more interesting variety devices. I hope you’ll consider joining in on the fun!

If you’d prefer to keep coming here and solving for free, you totally should! There will still be a themed crossword and two quiptics every month, with a fourth puzzle which will likely be a themeless crossword, blocked cryptic, or yes, a whole other variety cryptic.

Take care and enjoy! I’ll be back next week with a quiptic and the following with a type of puzzle you might not have seen before if you’re American like me.
