  1. I found this week's quiz more difficult. Clues were mot cryptic than usual. This is not a criticism, merely an observation. Others may have a different opinion - especially Martin, obviously.

    1. As long as people keep getting them, I know they're not too hard.

  2. I was a bit late for this one (again) but I love the teamwork it encourages when we all get stuck on something.
