Welcome to Puzzlevent 2022!
It’s back! This advent calendar is a month-long cryptic crossword. From December 1, three new cryptic clues will be released daily, but without saying how long their answers are or where they go in the grid – that information gets revealed over time. On December 25, 10 clues will be revealed instead as a bumper treat.
Clues are revealed each day at @PeakesPuzzles and here at puzzlevent.com
This year, there are two prizes you can win:
WIN A YEAR’S SUBSCRIPTION TO P&A MAGAZINE BY FOGGY BRUME!
Foggy Brume writes a whole range of variety puzzles, specialising in “puzzle hunt” style puzzles, i.e. ones with a twist. He has produced almost 100 issues of his magazine at pandamagazine.com, and if you’ve seen any of my Puzzle Boat streams on Twitch, you’ll know just how much I recommend them. This prize is a year’s subscription to the P&A magazine, and is available to be won worldwide. Check out the P&A Magazine and its brilliant puzzles here.
WIN TWO PUZZLE BOXES BY THE DETECTIVE SOCIETY!
The Detective Society have produced four brilliant series of puzzle boxes – play at home series of puzzles like mini escape rooms. Each box usually takes around two hours to play, and comes with a range of physical items, and you’ll end up interacting with websites, emails, maybe even a phone number or two as well. Great puzzles and very wittily written – I have done the first four “seasons” of puzzles on Twitch and you can darn well bet I’ll be streaming their fifth when it comes out in 2023. This prize is for posting to the UK only. Check out their puzzle boxes here.
Fill in the crossword grid and email it to email@example.com – the first correct solution randomly drawn out of the hat for each prize will win. Terms and conditions are on the puzzle PDF.
Enjoy the advent calendar, and good luck!
