This past Friday’s Listener puzzle, “Arthurian Legend”, is a very nice puzzle, not too easy and not too hard. I finished on Saturday morning. The theme is hard to say anything about without giving something away — I’ll just say that I think it will be unfamiliar to many, but that it looks to me like the way the puzzle is constructed, you don’t have to know anything about the theme to finish the puzzle. Nor does it look to me like figuring out the theme early would help much help in solving.
A nice touch that’s worth mentioning: When you’ve solved the puzzle and figured out the theme, some online research may lead you to a list of nine relevant titles that may now look a little familiar.
