Azed Headpieces Competitions
Show competitions in All competitions Azed Ximenes
From the preamble to Azed No. 1069
With the exception of the nine unclued lights, which must be deduced, but to which 26 Down and 1 Across provide a clue of sorts, all answers have new headpieces. That is, their initial letters have been replaced others, producing non-words. In each clue the definition part refers to the word in its correct form, while the subsidiary part refers to the form that is to appear in the diagram. A consecutive jumble of the letters of the correct form is also included in each clue.
Competitors should submit with their solutions a clue like all the others to 26 Across, assuming any new ‘headpiece’ they wish. Please specify clearly in your entry which new initial you have chosen.
