Welcome to CLUE CHAIN
The idea is to start with a cryptic clue - set by me this week.
The first correct solver, judged by the setter, is then invited to offer their clue and so on.
The person who solves the first clue starts the next CLUE CHAIN (Thursday 5th Jan. around noon).
Once you have solved and then set a clue you cannot enter again, although you can still comment.
30 min time limit per clue and if not solved the setter must declare the clue 'open' and everybody can play again.
Game closes 18.00 GMT
This week's opening clue is: Bear opening church. (7)
