Our members are generally amateur crossword setters and as such their crosswords may contain factual inaccuracies and occasional spelling mistakes. The commenting and mistake reporting systems allow you to describe problems, to supply positive feedback, or to prove construction criticism to the submitter. The comments system is not for supplying abusive or unhelpful comments.

Reporting Mistakes: If you want to reporting a mistake with one of the clues or words in this crossword rather that leaving a comment then you should use the Report Mistake button. This will leave a message for the submitter prompting them to resolve the mistake.

" puzzle, never would have gotten bryozoa or kloofs on my own, otherwise no real stumpers..."

"...pretty good, but doesn't 16a begin with an "o"?..."

"...Very enjoyable puzzle. Who could ever get 9A? And kloof actually does mean something (a deep ravine in South Africa). Possum can be spelled with or without an initial "o". One star less for using too obscure clue (9A)...."

"...I don't see the connection between financial security and "Elysium" (7 down) Anyone? Elysium was heaven to the ancient Greeks. Wouldn't that have been a better clue. ..."

"...Bounced between being cheesily obvious (kloofs, arabic) to the cryptically arcane (ozzy, bryozoa, elysium). Must find crossword medium in this category...."

"...7d: Financial security can lead to "Elysium" but it's a pretty weak clue. ..."
