welcome By way of reminder, the object of this game is to solve the clue presented by the previous poster and then set your own clue.

Anything from the (worldwide) crossword arena is acceptable by way of clue style, but if you stray from the pure path beware the scourge of... ...Pandora's WET NOODLE! scared

The puzzle could be an old favourite or something of your own making. Don't be shy: this is for everyone, not just the old hands!

There is nothing to prevent (say) a couple of related clues if offering a single clue cramps your style.

If there are multiple answers involved, there is no restriction against one person solving all and the solver of the final clue/part is the one who goes next.

Obviously you need to await confirmation of a correct answer before posting your own puzzle, but please then do so reasonably promptly: if having answered correctly you are not going to be able to set a follow-up clue within about the next 24 hours, please pass your turn to someone else so that the game does not stall.

To save the poor demented solvers from excessive brain damage hardwall , you should consider revealing one letter of the answer (in any position) when the question is set, unless the answer is very short/easy so that provision of a letter hint at the outset would spoil the sport!

If no-one is biting within about 24 hours you probably need to start dropping additional hints.

To try to give everyone a fair crack of the whip, the immediately previous setter is asked not to post a solution to the current clue within the first 24 hours.

The weighty trophy to be passed to whoever solves your clue is the jewel-encrusted World Clue Federation championship belt ===[**WCF**]===

Constructive criticism and cheerful badinage are to be expected, not to mention a certain amount of national rivalry, but above all, have a bit of fun! dance

Next clue:

Appeal for revolutionary archaism (8)

tricks?
April fool = trick; so April fools = tricks

trick (cards) = numerical arrangement?

trick (trɪk)
— n
8. cards
a batch of cards containing one from each player, usually played in turn and won by the player or side that plays the card with the highest value

And somehow, "tells what follows" = s !

I want the answers to be 1 ninety and 2 thirty, but that only works if your letter count for 1 is wrong...unless you have a different spelling for ninety over there! smile

If I am right, both are numbers: 2 "shows 6 x 5" = 30 (the punctuation and brackets being misdirection) and 1 is the answer to two x 3.

Probably completely wrong.
