After reading posts about "advanced" crosswords decided to try this. I've only lost about a day out of my life but worth it for the smug feeling on completion. Suppose all you experts finish it in half an hour?

Hi teenieleek.

Congratulations on finishing it.

I confess that I don't dare even start it!

Well done teenieleek - this was a good azed puzzle to start you off on with the clues all "working" very nicely and straightforwardly. Keep trying the "advanced" crosswords and if/when you get stuck you can ask for help on here1

Hi Jim C - Aye, right! (as they say in these parts) but thanks anyway and to Sudokulover - gosh was that an easy one? My vocabulary now includes choanae - just wondering how I can slip that into a conversation!

Well done teenieleek.

The really challenging Azed crosswords are the four weekly Competition puzzles when you also get a chance to compose an alternative clue to Azed's.
You might also look at Mephisto in the Sunday Times & Beelzebub in the Indy on Sunday.

If you are really brave try EV in the Sunday Telegraph.

Congrats from me too Teenieleek - very well done. I have reached the last clue, and I can't see the wordplay. The clue is 28d 'Decorative tile:one found in Med is also decorated'. I have DAL?E and I think the answer is DALLE, which is a decorative tile according to Chambers,but I can't see how it fits the clue. Can some kind person enlighten me ?
Thanks
S

Hi K - thanks for suggestions, will try a couple but the poor paper boy would have a dislocated shoulder if I bought that lot. (not to mention the cost). Have to confess I found dalle in dictionary so in it went without knowing why.

Hi again teenieleek
Azed 1984
If you don't want to wait another 3 weeks for the next competition crossword here is a link to last week's puzzle titled 'Doublethink'.
It was a cracker of a puzzle and will give you more insight into the world of 'Advanced' crosswords.
