Inspired by all sorts of things (saying more might spoil the fun), I’ve put together a small barred cryptic crossword for your enjoyment. Because it’s barred, it is available in PDF only, but the grid is so tiny and simple that you should have no problem solving the puzzle on a piece of scrap paper.
Cryptic experts are invited to try using just the across clues … or just the down clues!
Truly enjoyed 1A — made me literally LOL. The whole puzzle was a delightful amuse bouche.
