Play the puzzle in the video by clicking the link under the video (above). We are building a website which will allow you to enter your own sudoku puzzles into the software and this is coming soon!


Hi! We're Simon Anthony and Mark Goodliffe, two of the UK's most enthusiastic puzzle solvers. We have both represented the UK at the World Sudoku Championships and the World Puzzle Championships. We're also "cryptic crossword" aficionados. Mark is the twelve-time winner of The Times championship and Simon is the former record holder for most consecutive correct solutions to The Listener crossword. We hope we can help your puzzle solving while also introducing you to some of the world's best puzzles.

Thank you for watching!

Simon and Mark


Always nice to see a crossword video from you, thanks. I hope you enjoyed the 90th birthday jumbo on Saturday?

Madhuri Dutta

Thank you so much! You have been so helpful!


My favourite is:
Moon starer (10)

Anag & Lit



I'd say most of these examples rely on British English that's too obscure for viewers in other countries to possibly know.


What "Times" paper is this from? The New York Times Crossword is nothing like this lol


Arguably they're a subset of Hidden, but initialisms and alternate letter clues are so common these days that they're almost categories of their own. Also, the 'substitute X for Y' ones seem to crop up more than once a week.


After seeing this it is clear that the audience for you sudoku (and other puzzle types) videos is just as exclusive as the crossword parts, but there are after all just a few hundre million native Enghlish speakers in the worlds, while puzzles and numbers are truly a universal language.

I find your comment about "narrow vocabulary" quite condescending against your international audience. I have no problem understanding the logic, it is just that I do not have the same vocabulary in English as I have in say Swedish. Please feel free to solve a Swedish competition crossword.

D4r4 Butler

Thank You!


Very useful, thanks Mark, pleased to see cryptics getting some love on the channel. Speaking of which, "Rumpy Pumpy" there's a term I haven't heard for a long time :)

Tim Choate

American here. Thanks, Mark!


About homophones, how do I know when an idea I have is a legitimate homophone? My non-native accent might mess this up. Is there any official reference material for this, so it works regardless of your accent?

Daniel Smith

“Cryptic crosswords are harsh on people with a narrow vocabulary”

Me: That’s me

“Im referring to children”

Me: Right. I’m now going to drown my depression with brownies

Philip Lindley

I think you need a special kind of brain to figure cryptic clues - I don't have one.


This is one of my favorite videos because I had absolutely no idea how the cryptic clues were being solved. I went back and watched one and wasn't as fast but I could at least figure out how you were getting your answers. Thanks for the tips.


Brilliant... many thanks for that.

Zali Becquerel

Fantastic video. Loving your channel overall.


can you give a cryptic code for the word routine

Patch Work

"People think crossword clues are a whole language they could never understand"
"I think crosswords are a bit hard on people with a narrow vocabulary"
Those comments are a lot more on the nose than you acknowledge in the video. You emphasise how many clues can only be found through repeated exposure to crosswords. You also dismiss your second point about how some of the words are way outside the common vocabulary by implying that's mostly about children - but what about the entire population without a higher education and/or lengthy reads? What about non-native speakers?

I understand you're passionate about crosswords and try to encourage people who feel it's too hard for them to still give it a go. But please, do admit that they are a highly exclusive hobby that requires both a high level of general knowledge AND lengthy training. It's not even enough to know the words, you have to know the codes, the ways the words are used in such situations - it very much is its own dialect. It's definitely not something everyone can do well, and it's no coincidence most crossword aficionados are well-read, middle-to-upper class people.

James Palmer

Not sure I should be cackling like a maniac when watching this, but I find this sort of crossword clue hilarious. Really good masterclass in clue solving. Thank you.


When I watch something like this, I get a little boosted with thoughts of "Oh, I write a lot, and love to help fix English grammar, etcetera, so I should be able to manage these." but am still daunted by it when I see your long videos and know you are an expert (just like I do not do the longer sudoku's on your channel). However, I assume there are ranking levels to cryptic crosswords as there are to sudoku puzzles. Are there some one-star ones out there rather than jumping to our local paper and likely getting in over our head? Just like with any other form of puzzle, we would be hooked and appreciative of it more if we started out with something simpler and worked into harder things.

Dodu Chat

I hope I can know practice more, since english is not my first language, knowing all the clue types ! Thanks for the explanations !

frie jemi

Interesting tips, thanks. Caught the Picard reference too


As English is not my mother tongue, I will probably never have enough vocabulary to crack any single phrase of the cryptic crosswords that you do. But it was nevertheless very interesting to see how this type of puzzle works and how you solve them as easily as sudoku.

Non Specific

I'm pretty sure the ability to solve cryptics is something that's really passed down. Before four or five years ago, I could never solve cryptics. No one had ever explained them to me as a child, how to break the clues down and so on. Now I love them.

Austin Rearick

I've thought about making something like this for my friends interested in getting into cryptics. I'll be sending them all here instead. Thanks for working this up! This is a very good primer.


Lovely! Thank you.

Kell Willsen

Some of my favourite exceptions are: Sgeg (7, 4); Play with angkooler (4, 4, 2, 5); and: Not this (8).


N Black

Excellent video. Thanks for this.


Hm. My English vocabulary appears comparable to that of a British child. The only clue I solved was, rather appropriately, the one about musical chairs.


Looking at Google Ngrams, you can see words like "cupidity" and "llanos" are pretty rarely used these days so it would be reasonable to assume even educated, native English-speaking adults would struggle too, not just children. You have to be particularly well-read to have a chance at these sorts of clues, not just "an adult".

On the other hand, someone who's not used to cryptic crosswords (like me) might find the "musical chairs" clue particularly easy as our minds don't jump straight to alternative or more obscure meanings.

qaz wiz

first Double Definition i ever figured out
is still my favorite = Summer Snake (5)


As a non native speaker this video is necessary to even try to appreciate your crossword's video. Thank you a lot

robxDin sammie200345

12:55 you just worded why I couldn't understand any of those clues- I'm a non native English speaker and my vocabulary only contains commonly used words


Cryptic Crosswords are very hard for non-natives. And it looks like, that other cultures doesn't have such things. For example, in Russia crosswords are very popular, but we don't have cryptic variant of them.

Kell Willsen

Thanks for this handy reference vid. Another piece of advice that I'd add is not to be shy about using a dictionary and a thesaurus. Crosswords aren't just for people who already have a broad vocabulary, they are also a great way to expand one. Likewise, it helps to have a broad knowledge base (everything from politics and pop culture to chemistry and classics) but anything you don't already know, you can look up.

Well, not under championship conditions, maybe. But for everyday solving, reference books are brilliant.
