Cryptic clue of the day

Filed under: Uncategorized — by ichabodisitchy @ 10:13 pm

I've been having problems with the formatting of these. Someone has told me the highlighting white text isn't working for getting the answers. And it seems so messy to publish a clue one day and the answer again the next. So here's my newest idea- I will post the clue of the day on ichabod and have created a separate page (cryptic creations) where you can pick up the answers. Hope this works.

"Party of last five nutters" (8)

Go to cryptic creations for the answer.



  1. Hi, if this helps at all, I found that the highlighting did not work on the blog itself but worked fine when viewing the entry on Bloglines.

  2. Incidentally, this clue is a satisfying one.

    I still don’t get yesterday’s (the search engine one). I got the answer intiuitively but I can’t work back to find the logic for why there isn’t a “k” in the answer and why there is an “e” (other than the fact that you have to do that to get the right answer).

    I got stuck with this clue in the Times the other day: “Woman’s carrier” but not 4 letters (that would be obvious) — 7 letters, third is N, last is G. I could not understand why it wasn’t 4 letters in answer, which would have been obvious. Had to wait until the next day to see that the answer is “handbag”.
