From Mensa comes a series of super-challenging puzzles that go way beyond the average crosswordand also offer an authentic treasure-trove of wordplay demanding some skilled solving. Heres how they go: each clue has two parts. One is the normal definition of an answer, while the other features a little linguistic playfulnessmaybe an anagram, perhaps a pun, and sometimes even a word written backward. And the hitch istheres usually no indication of which comes first, or punctuation to mark the division. Youve got to see through the clue-makers deceptions and tease out the correct answer by rethinking the clues wording. Some of the irresistible language trickery includes double definitions, hidden answers, homophones, and containers.
