Question

Posted · Report post

I called this type "Quickie POW's" in my Last Puzzle but these are really different than the other POW's posted here so I will now call them "Cryptic Clues".

1. Helen's husband is normal at first. (5)

2. 70's ballad band was stylish in the past. (7)

3. Never ending TV show casts Eric, originally, in the king's place. (10)

4. Certain transit lines aren't removed from crime boss's underground location. (6)

5. Catch the train to Kyoto from another Japanese city. (5)

6. Blood test marks the end of one D.C. batters return to European or Asian city. (7)

7. Washington's former enemy is some backward dairy worker without any energy. (6)

8. A slow operating system is one of Buffy's demons. (5)

9. The wicked cry, yet I know where Columbia is. (11)

10. The 9-11 ringleader has a network in a busy airport. (7)

11. Bobcats returned to face cynic and hit him violently in Saigon today. (13)

The number in parentheses represents how many letters are in the answer.

Some of the answers are in two (or more) words but I did not break this down in the number because I thought it would be too easy. There is a theme that when discovered should make the solving go easier.

These are left by my count:

3. Never ending TV show casts Eric, originally, in the king's place. (10)

6. Blood test marks the end of one D.C. batters return to European or Asian city. (7)

10. The 9-11 ringleader has a network in a busy airport. (7)

and most likely still

8. A slow operating system is one of Buffy's demons. (5)

the king's place = Los Angeles

TV show = Angel or Lost?

either could be never ending

never ending could be *less*

if it were loss maybe it all works

Eric originally may be E cast into the other...what I gots so far

think the Asian city = Beijing

Blood test marks = B ?

the end of one = E ?

the rest ?????

and could equally be all wrong

9-11 ringleader could be Osama or Bin Laden or other

has a network could be Al Queada

Or both could be a misdirection:

9-11 could be 911

ringleader could be R or RI or

Network could be LAN

and I mentioned Atlanta has the busiest airport and is seven letters

Not only is today the longest day of the year, it is also my anniversary so will be taking big risks if I continue checking in. Probably cant help myself but otherwise....
