I love Saturdays (due to every paper running a prize x-word) but I wondered which (any?) of the daily papers run a prize cryptic on a weekday (aside from the FT on a monday, which I already do)...

I just enjoy doing a crossword so much more when it has that competition element to it (even if its the most insignificant of prizes...and to be honest, I rarely complete and send anyway!)

So... which paper(s) should I buy?!

Many thanks!!

Daily Express offers the Crusader Prize Crossword every day. It is not too difficult, but still quite enjoyable.

Dolly...I would also recommend the ipaper on a Friday. Its got a very small readership, compared to other quality papers, so you will have a better chance of winning. I won the Sunday Times solid silver Cross fountain pen twice last year, and a handy Whitackers Almanac last month, so its well worth it to keep trying !

Hi DollyHaze,

The Guardian do a Prize crossie every Saturday. You'll find it here:

The daily ones are good too but the Saturday is always special.

Thanks everybody! Had a punt at both the Express and 'i' today... (turns out the Express is more my level, alas! couldn't get going on the i at all :( )
Will be sure to try the DM next week.

Once again, thankyou!
