For a number of reasons, I want to put this puzzle up solely as a PDF of the original appearance in The Independent. One is a lack of time – this is a key weekend in the annual APEX puzzle series, so I’m rather busy compiling emails and letters to go out to regular participants (the 2013 puzzle will appear on this site in late April or early May) .
But I also want you to experience it as solvers of the day (29 June 2012) saw it. There’s something about this puzzle that I hope to return to in a few weeks’ time.
I’ll try and get the solution up soon – but should I fail, and you really need it, please leave a request-cum-comment. Alternatively, this blog post has all the answers.
