    Find the hidden answer. Each sentence contains a clue plus an answer.
    The number following each sentence is the number of letters in the answer.

    Try this one:

    How some answers may be found in clues, some of which I’d denoted (6)

    Find the hidden answer. Each sentence contains a clue plus an answer.
    The number following each sentence is the number of letters required for the word or words in the answer.
    Everyone is welcome to leave a new hidden answer clue but, if not, I will leave further clues as we go along. Cheers.

    Sorry Val but I’m hopelessly lost here. 😕 How about you complete a couple for us (showing how you do it) and hopefully I’ll be able to get it from there. My humblest apologies! 😥

    awww Fern, sweetie – no need to apologise. Cryptics are not everybody’s cup of tea.

    ——————————————————————————————————————

    The answer to that puzzle is …hidden. It is a reference to hidden answer cryptic clue puzzles.

    The clue is:-  How some answers may be found in clues.
    The indicator is:- some of … meaning some of the following letters include the answer.
    And the following letters are:-   ‘which I’d denoted’….  i.e. whicH I’D DENoted… i.e.  hidden.

    The number (6) means there is only one word you are looking and it has 6 letters.
    If there is more than one word to find e.g. 3 words –  there would be 3 numbers shown, each showing the number of letters in each word.

    So the answer to the clue – ‘How some answers may be found in clues’ is ‘hidden’.
    ——————————————————————————————————————

    If you decide this game is not for you I’ll just leave it, I truly don’t mind. We have plenty of other games we can play 🙂

    Oh dear Val….there’s no way I’d be able to handle this game. I’m absolutely useless at cryptic crosswords which says it all really. 😀 I’m so sorry. 😥

    By chance were you around when a member called ‘ocker’ was here? He was banned awhile ago, along with a few others, but he was a dab hand at cryptic crosswords. He’d have LOVED this game…..drat!!!!

    No problem, Fern. Please don’t worry about it 😮 💋
    Yes, I remember ocker but didn’t get to know him very well.
