Dedicated puzzle enthusiasts see it too often: ordinary crosswords with ho-hum clues like a€œToledoa€™s lakea€ for ERIE. That means they need to spice up their solving with the pure puzzling pleasure of cryptic crosswords. Here, each clue offers double the dose of wordplay: to find the answer, theya€™ll have to do a little extra decipheringa€”recognizing a homophone, for example, or working out a charade. Once fans try cryptics, theya€™ll never return to regular crosswords again!ACROSS 1 PROTEGE (anag.) 6 *BE(R)ETS 10 *(s)LANDER 11 BEGON(e) + I + A 12 FLOE (hom.) 13 BO(SO)X 14 E(B)ON 15 SCAT (2 defs.) ... 2 RABBI + TRY 3 *ON(I) + ON 4 (r)EELS 5 *GRO + CER (rev.) 6 *BELTS (2 defs.) ...
