Cryptic Crosswords Course

Have you always been intrigued but baffled by cryptic crosswords? Never known how to begin to tackle the clues? The key is to treat it like learning a new language. On that basis, this introductory course offers structured practice and examples to help you to analyse clues, spot code words, and look out for hidden instructions. Doing cryptic crosswords is a good way of keeping the mind active and flexible - and it is never too late to learn. Although solving them will never be easy, the battle of wits is part of the fun.

The course has been devised by a U3A member and consists of eight sessions of two hours each plus a short break.
