Slight misprint in the preamble, as 24 of the 48 clues need you to omit certain letters. Therefore 24 clues are perfectly normal.

I've not finished yet, but ma and pa are missing from the 24 altered clues.

Hope that helps.

Hi voulez-vous

I have a lot of the PA & MA 'losses' but cannot figure out whether 1a is another?
Can you help with a big hint to the solution
please?

Hi Rosie,

Yep 1a) has a missing pa. Palladium, is what I've gone for.

I'm nowhere near finished, but have got the gist. It's taking me forever!

Sorry, Rosie, I just realised you said "hint"!

Still, I'm not finished, so hardly giving the game away!

Hi manic mary

The character running from from top left to bottom right will explain the misfortune of the PA & MA connection.
