L4624: ‘World-beating’ by Kea

Posted by Encota on 2 October 2020

A beautifully constructed puzzle, I thought – my thanks to Kea.

Fortunately I solved all twelve 6-letter answers fairly early on. They still weren’t trivial to jigsaw together but some groups of three appeared to be unique. With one set in place I spotted LAUGHTER as a possible Down entry and already had MEDICINE as an answer – and so the penny dropped. LAUGHTER is the best MEDICINE. I wonder what other phrases could take that form?

At the end I wasn’t quite sure if I’d highlighted a diamond or a world shape. For the former, perhaps an allusion to ‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”; if the latter then tying in with the world of ‘world-beating’. Either or both felt like a satisfying solution!

And finally, great punning in the Title – assuming it’s a world shape then that’s at least three meanings!

Cheers all,

Tim / Encota
