The grid has 180-degree symmetry, and clues are in the normal order. The TREASURE HUNT ends in the usual way, though solvers must select which option is correct, and highlight that cell. The options are omitted from wordplay in the relevant clues; accommodations necessary to fit words into the grid will point the way. Bars and clue numbers need not be entered; Chambers Dictionary (2016) is recommended.
