You Cannot Solve These Clues Unless...

…you have more information about them than this (and I don't mean crossing letters):

FT13361 (Viking): This initially gets involved here (5)
Times 24472: Here it isn’t out of place (is to be written out)! (8)

Try solving them with the clue sheet as it appeared in the paper:

FT13361 (Viking)

ft13361-viking

Times 24472

Very clever.The answers being the clue number itself in each case. Nice

There's a clue in my next crossword for Fire and Knives (food writing magazine) that's simply

Ancestors cooked here(3,6)

No prizes for guessing where the answer appears in the grid!

Three (T+here*)
Thirteen (Hereit(-is)nt*)

Prithwiraj said...

three and thirteen

anokha said...

T(HREE*)

THIRTEEN*(-IS)

Happy Belated Birthday to your blog Suchi - your dedication is simply amazing!

Kishore said...

T(his) HREE*

THIRTEEN(-is)* ('here it isnt' after dropping 'is (which is said to be out))

Both are clue numbers!

S.Vini said...

3. This initially gets involved here (5) - (T)(HREE)*

13. Here it is'nt out of place (is to be written out)! - THIRTEEN (CD)

S.Vini said...

13. Here it is'nt out of place (is to be written out)! - (8)

On a second thought it is
(THIRTEEN)- {(HERE IT IS'NT)* - IS}
GREAT CLUE!

Well cracked everyone.

@Crucifer: That clue is poised to get you plenty of compliments.

@anokha: Good to see you here, it's been a while! Thanks.

Now that you know the trick, solve the next clue from the Guardian (Paul) and guess where it appeared in the grid:

Guardian 24167 (Paul): Take this clue number, change it and lose your mind! (5,3)

Crucifer said...

I confess I had to look up the crossword and solve some of it before I got that one. One down in that puzzle is a cracker too!
