Devised by David Astle, is a hybrid of crossword, jigsaw and acrostic. First, solve as many clues as you can, taking care to identify the odd cryptic clue, and then begin to fit the answers inside the grid. (The scattered letters of RUBICON will give you a toehold.) When the grid is completed, arrange the clues from the first Across to the last Down – their 32 initial letters will label a category that includes 6 of your solution words.
