‘Word Squares’ by Elap

Posted by Encota on 8 December 2017

A very nice puzzle – thank you Elap!  The initial Preamble was pretty daunting and, combined with the terseness of the clues has perhaps set a new ‘High Score’ for:

(number of characters in Preamble)/(number of characters in Clues)

The numerical deductions took a while but it was all worth it.  I was briefly thrown when my electronic Chambers didn’t give SAIRS as a plural of SAIR but the BRB definition fully backed up its use – phew!

And Elap did ask us to follow the instruction: VARY, to re-arrange all 25 letters involved.  What follows are my alternative results …

Introduction: I retire at Elap’s masterclass

Describing the squares and their contents: similar aspect (as letters are)!

Describing both letter square constructions: all are artist’s masterpieces!

And describing the endgame.  Crisp tail: same letters, areas

Great fun – thanks again!  In summary: Elap is a secret trial master!!

cheers all,

Tim/Encota
