About this deal

The first prize will be two nights, bed and breakfast with dinner on one evening for two people sharing in Glenlo Abbey, Co Galway. The Big Book of Simplex Crosswords combines the first two bestselling titles in the Simplex series in a new edition. The Crosaire is a very special puzzle indeed, though its seemingly zany clues and apparent lack of logic can be off-putting to beginners.

Take a look at my top tips for beginner solvers and give it a go – I promise your brain does work like that. You could purchase access to our ePaper, a digital replica of the newspaper, as part of our Premium Digital subscription. Responsibility will not be accepted for entries lost, damaged or delayed as a result of any network, computer hardware or software failure of any kind.The promoters’ decision is final and binding in all matters and no correspondence will be entered into. Solve with a friend: Nothing beats fresh eyes for seeing a word in a different context, or spotting an indicator you were sure was a definition.

Brainstorm, brainstorm, brainstorm: Go through each clue with a fine-tooth comb and jot down every acronym, abbreviation, synonym or associated word you can connect to every word or phrase in the clue, no matter how outlandish or tenuous the link. If the prize is unclaimed after this time, it will lapse and the Promoter reserves the right to offer the unclaimed prize to a substitute winner selected in accordance with the Promotion rules.

I got this at Christmas and I'm trying to make it last by only doing a crossword every now and then! If Irish Times crosswords interest you then you must look out for their special Mega crossword events where the winner can earn prizes and also their unique and griping Christmas Crosswords. I also like that nearly all words cannot be completed just by default by completing adjacent words; you have to think harder for the answers.

The promotion is open to residents of Ireland aged 18 years or over except employees of the Promoter, their families, agents or anyone professionally connected with the promotion. Start with a Saturday puzzle and work from the outside in: The Saturday Crosaire is a great confidence builder, as each corner clue shares a word or theme in common.
