Hi Dizoz - I haven't got anywhere with this. I do feel that whatever is entered, it would be a complete word. The "something to drive" - I've looked at lists of vehicles and there aren't many four-letter words that contain the "n" - tank is one.

And the "eon" - you still need a six-letter word, don't you? or am I confused? - But yes, that's for sure. Please continue to post if you find anything - and so shall I.

I have to say that this is one of those Genius puzzles where I start reading the instructions and lose the will to live, let alone attempt the crossword!

something to drive - maybe iron(golf club)?
Only just looked at this and I don't yet understand what to do.

Nice try Trevor, but irons aren't used to drive a golf ball; afaik, a club called 'a driver' is used.

How about 'oxen'? They can be driven too.

By the way, I don't have this crossword.

Sport was never my strong point.
If oxen was correct it would mean 7 answers begin with x (as I understand it)

Thank you for the link, Trevor.

From what you say, it sounds as though 'oxen' wouldn't be such a good idea.

But when I read the instructions, I interpret it to mean that 7 answers begin with the same letter - in the case of (e.g.) 'oxen', this would be an 'o'.

It is all a bit mind-boggling though.

Ah, you are right Trevor.

I didn't read the last sentence of the instructions: "The four letters that begin the solutions may be arranged to give something to drive.".

So, 7 answers would have to begin with an 'x' - as you said all along.

If anyone is still looking at this....

10A looks like "DOJO" which means(i think)another clue with answer beginning with D has reference to "OJO" (spring/oasis/rebirth) - unfortunately I can't really see such a link - any thoughts?

hi ixion et al, relieved to note i'm not alone. been doing GG's for years - this is first time stumping. EON and NEON may not be correct. but serve as interpretation guide. i am concentrating on 22A/22D and 24A/24D (without success, yet!) any input welcome
