MiniCryptic Crossword

Cryptic clues are often divided into two parts. One part is a straight definition of the answer, and the other part is a cryptic description utilizing wordplay. The order and the divide between parts are for the solver to figure out. If you are new to cryptics, we provide a detailed tutorial. It will open in a new window. Extra help on this one: I use exclamation points when a clue is completed with only one of the two parts, and a question mark to indicate extra funny business.
