Hi All,

I regularly attempt the Sunday Times cryptic and Mephisto and wondered what puzzles (of a similar standard) appear in the other Sunday papers. I know the Sunday Telegraph has a cryptic, but does it have another puzzle too?

Any suggestions gratefully received, as I fancy an extra challenge today!

THE MAIL ON SUNDAY -have 3 good crosswords cost £1,50p
Sunday Express has 3 crosswords cost £1.35p
Both these papers have great cash prizes of £1.500 and £1,000. I live in hope to
win the big one, have won small cash from Sunday express a couple of times,
Good luck,
The Independent On Sunday has two cryptic prize puzzles. The one in the newspaper is a traditional cryptic, usually solvable. The other puzzle,beelzebub, is in the magazine/supplement and is like Mephisto in that there are no blacked out squares. It's tough at times, maybe not quite as arduous as Mephisto.

Question Author
It is actually sunny here at the moment............I'm going to wander off and get my papers and actually risk not taking the brolly!
