Setter The Ace of Hearts
Series Enigmatic Variations
Number 1473
Date 07/02/2021
Grid 1212 barred grid with 180 symmetry.
Preamble One letter must be deleted from each clue before solving; in clue order, these letters spell out part of a definition of a two-word entry in Chambers, the SEA SHELL. Five thematic answers are formed in cells where entries clash. With one exception, these clashes are formed by their answers being too long for the given space. After the clashes are formed, they must be treated as per the definition from extra letters. The final grid will then consist of real words (ignoring content of cells generated by thematic treatment). Chambers Dictionary (2016) is recommended.
