Hex Cryptic Crossword — NP 221015 (Cox and Rathvon)

Hex Cryptic Crossword — NP 221015 (Cox and Rathvon)
This puzzle from Cox & Rathvon was published in the National Post on Saturday, October 15, 2022. You can find a full review of the puzzle at Saturday, October 15, 2022 — Halls of Academe (NP 221015).

Even though this puzzle will no doubt prove to be quite a challenging experience for most solvers south of the border, I encourage you to try to enjoy it as it will be the last one you will have the opportunity to do.

The National Post has discontinued publishing cryptic crossword puzzles—both the weekend Cox and Rathvon puzzle as well as the weekday Daily Telegraph Cryptic Crossword. Thus this is the last time I will be posting a blog entry for the National Post Cox and Rathvon puzzle. I will continue to write a weekly post on the Daily Telegraph Cryptic Crossword but it will now deal with the puzzle when it is published in the Daily Telegraph rather than when it appears in syndication sometime later.

I hope you have enjoyed this blog. I wish you well in your cruciverbal initiatives.

Your comments—whether they be with regard to the puzzle or the blog—are always welcome. However, I suggest you post comments pertaining to the puzzle on the review of the puzzle in order to keep all such comments in one place.
