Take a Crossword's Cryptic Class - Episode 13
If you need a little help in solving cryptic crosswords, look no further than our Cryptic Class videos!
Episode 13 gives a few specific hints to help you solve Cryptic Corner, found on page 55 of Take a Crossword Issue 1, but it will help you out with approaching any cryptic crossword!
So if you've always wondered why Spoils of War (4) gives MARS, or Die of Cold (3, 4) becomes ICE CUBE, this is where to start!
If you missed our previous episodes that covered other aspects of solving cryptic crosswords, you can still see them here. Watch them all and you'll be a whizz in no time at all!
