I’ll cut you from ear to ear.

I don’t know what that is. Like literally no idea if it’s a puzzle or some fringe party.

officially they’re called nonograms, but the games with them in are called picross

(I’d vote for the Picross Party btw)

I haven’t solved any yet either.

I’ve been going through a book of Times Cryptics with my gf. About 9 puzzles in and still looking up plenty of answers.

We’re getting better though. Do you understand the principles?

I used to, but even then I was rubbish at them. it’s why I usually skip the crossword and go straight for the sudoku

I have only ever known those as hanjie puzzles. My Mum likes them but she voted Brexit so don’t know.

picross = Brexit Party confirmed :frowning:

I think 1 down is European but I don’t know why except I solved the anagram.

I clicked reveal on a few answers and even then I couldn’t understand the link between the clue and the answer.

e.g. 2 down (includes answer) Clue: Endless protest in capital. OK, so I guess ‘in capital’ could mean the answer is some of the letters in the word capital? And endless could mean excluding the letter ‘L’ maybe? hits reveal Oh it’s fucking ‘Oslo’ No idea how that fits. Now I feel dense.

Ah you can just hit reveal and see the answers. EVERYBODY OUT.

The theme appears to be Europe, I think.

Forget it zxcvbnm, it’s marckeetown

It is go-slow but “endless”, ie without the first and last letters
