SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS – PLEASE NOTE
Although it appears normal, please note that there is an additional twist in this puzzle
The clue pointing to a solution is not in it’s correct place. The locations of clues in the puzzle have been changed. Further, pairs of clues have been mutually interchanged with one other. So, for example, if a clue in 6D actually refers to a solution in 8D, the vice versa is also true..
The Enumeration (Enum) for the word being clued also exactly matches that of the location in which it has been placed. So 6 letter words are swapped with other six letter words and so on..As part of the solving process, you would need to work out the correct solution as well as its correct location.
By and large, the Across clues and Down clues have NOT been mixed together. However, there are three across clues which have been swapped with down clues and these have been marked with an asterisk preceding the clue. There is no indication on which down clues are swapped with across clues, That’s for you to figure out.
