The NGV in Melbourne is holding a
three-day crossword extravaganza in support of the Art Book Fair and in collaboration with The Good Copy.
What’s more: they’re holding an event specifically for DA Trippers!
It’s on Friday next week, that’s the 16th of March.
Come along, meet everyone and bash out that Friday’s DA, plus a special classic from the vaults.
I’ll also be solving both DAs live on stage, with audience participation and general frivolity.
And if you can’t make it down on the Friday, there’s a Saturday and Sunday of events — jam-packed with LR specialities and Casey Benetto airing grammar grievances.

Want a mid-week cryptic challenge?
Head over to
the Puzzle Section for issue six, penned by me.
Take a leisurely stroll through
issue five of the Puzzle Section.
A little easier than normal. Can you spot the unobtrusive theme?
Symptomatic takes over the cryptic reins on issue four of the Puzzle Section.
Why not enjoy a cryptic (and a poetric set by Jorge Luis Borges!) over lunch?
It’s 2017 and we’re bringing to you a new comment input form.
There have been many accounts of the previous comment input form not working well with the latest Microsoft browser. The changes to the comment form should fix that particular problem, but might cause others.
Let us know if you have any problems commenting in 2017, and have a happy new year.
Issue three of the Puzzle Section is up.
It’s a themer in the style of one you’d expect from DA.
The cryptic is an
updated version of an old AS Special.
Issue two of the Puzzle Section is out.
The cryptic is somewhat harder than an LR and somewhat easier than a DA — I think that’s called the sweet spot.
If you’re feeling down about a lack of LR today in the Fairfax papers, try
the Puzzle Section.
first issue of the Puzzle Section is out, and the cryptic is penned by me!
An abiding obsession of each of the founders of the DA Trippers is the funk.
And yet again, the funk delivers, this time with a crossword anthem. Sly Stone, we thank you.

Looks like fun… I find it odd that newspapers are still the primary vehicle for the cryptic… could the Cruciverbalist mag be the future?
