The Oracle is all set to entertain you all with another interesting challenge -a “Double Dare”.

Incidentally, this is a themed puzzle and displays a map of the scene of events it commemorates.

We plan to publish “Double Dare” at 9:00am Bahrain time (11:30am India) on Sunday 28th May here, in our blog and it will be open for submission till midnight IST on Monday 5th June.

The first all correct entry will be declared the winner. We are delighted to announce that the winner will receive an autographed copy of fellow cruciverbalist and  author Debbie Manber Kupfer’s book of puzzles,  “Paws4Logic“, that was co-authored with her son Joey Kupfer

If the winner is outside the US, due to the high costs of shipping, Debbie would be happy to provide a printable Ebook and a personalized note instead.

Names of all who submit fully correct entries (including answers to questions asked at the end of the puzzle) will go in to our Hall of fame.

Detailed instructions with regard to submission will be provided in the puzzle post.

Spread the word,  dust your keyboards, sharpen your pencils / and your wits and let us know if you dare to  join us for the “Double Dare”

    Looking forward to this teaser. Sharpen your pencil : In this day and age? I use a ball point pen and the very convenient online versions.

      There’s an old joke about people who use pencils vs pens for cryptic crosswords – especially if the crosswords are tougher pencils are preferred – ”twas a nod to that:)

        Nowadays, erasers have been replaced by ballpoint pen white -outs which I use to correct myself- very effective! I haven’t used a pencil in ages. I used to quip: confidence is using a ballpoint pen to solve crosswords : Even in those days when white-outs were not available.Then came the brush types which used to dry up to be followed by ballpoints , mercifully.
