About this time last year I found and entered a quiz which I would love to do again thisyear but can't remember where it came from. There was a story, line by line, and each line had clues for 3 words. with dashes indicating the length of the answer and some of the letters. When you had all the answers, you took the first letters of the words, and they made a sequence, somehing like turning dark to pale via dark - dirk - kirk etc If this rings any bells with anyone, please let me know!

The one I am thinking of isnt a story so maybe its not the one
one I had was where you couldnt tell which bit of the clue went to which of the 3 words in the line.
last years theme was a word ladder and the year before it was shakespeare - is that the one
I know's known as the Charity Christmas Puzzle and is organised by Gordon Gray. The website is, which will tell you when it's due to be available for download. Stick it in your favourites as it comes up every December.
Just been to check and it will be ready from 8th December. This years theme is "the birds and the bees" so I'm not sure what to expect.

It's a great puzzle and takes some working out but it can't be that difficult as I've dropped only one point in the past four years. You would like it smouse!!
I have done it for the last 2 years and I do and like you have it bookmarked
Not as good as you yet got 118.5 first year but 119.5 last year
First year I didnt understand it all but when you get into it, its brilliant
Like you, Smouse, I've done this for the last 2 years, and dropped 3 points in 2005 and 1 point last year. Many congratulations Brokenbank on doing so well in the last 4 years.
My memory is like a sieve, but I think the organiser told me that he'd had more than 3000 downloads last year, and there were only 11 all correct entries.
I definitely recommend it, but beware it's highly addictive!
Yes headaches to come from the 8th December then but I like a challenge - lol
It is a super quiz and it takes a bit of getting used to, but it's great for passing time over the Christmas break when there's the usual rubbish on TV.

I dropped two half points for spelling mistakes!
