12 December 2017 - Hamish Symington (Craig 1993-98) sets Guardian crossword

Hamish Symington (Craig 1993-98) has set this month's 'Genius' crossword in The Guardian newspaper.

He tells us that it's one of the more difficult examples of cryptic crossword and, as a keen solver himself, the 'Genius' normally takes between two and five hours to complete if he works at it solidly.

So if you have some spare time over Christmas, you may want to have a go yourself.

There is a £100 prize on offer for online entries and the deadline for submitting your entry is 23:59 GMT on Saturday 30 December.

You can find the crossword online at www.theguardian.com/crosswords/2017/dec/04/genius-crossword-no-174
