SQP139 – Quiptic #23

Hello, Quipsters!

Thanks for coming by! Today’s puzzle is a gentle quiptic, which has a small grid and only one device per clue. The “helpers” version lets you know which device to look for in each entry. This one is on the easy side for Square Pursuit, but hopefully it’s entertaining for new and old solvers alike! Thanks to Will for test solving.

You’ll be able to find more of my cryptic and non-cryptic work in other venues in the next couple of weeks, which I hope you enjoy. Next month at Square Pursuit will bring a fun themed crossword and variety cryptic collaborations as well as two quiptics. Stay tuned!

Take care and enjoy the puzzle. Back in one week with the themed crossword collab, and in two with another quiptic!

  1. Another newby question: in 8D when we are using the even letters to arrive at the answer why does the text say “oddly” cut? Wouldn’t it be better to say “evenly” cut? Thanks!

    1. Hey there! Thanks for solving and asking! The idea is that the letters which won’t be used are cut, sort of like parts cut from a manuscript. I hope that helps!
