Crossword | Croesair 1193


Hope your Halloween was sufficiently spooky! I’m happy to report that the Crossword was legible this edition, so that’s one issue out of the way. Unfortunately, as spotted by some of you, there are gaps in the word boxes. This new software kept them in, unlike the last website we used, so we’ll keep that in mind for next time. Hopefully it wasn’t too perplexing and keep an eye out for the next one – third time’s the charm!

Keep puzzling Cardiff,

Edward Sutton
