Forum Crossword (QM)

Unread post by RosemaryH » Wed Jan 18, 2012 12:14 am

Ok… so I have been pondering on this for a while now. :D Let’s give it a try and see how it goes.

Please bear in mind that the spelling sometimes varies slightly from one map to another.

I suggest that you save and print the grid, complete the crossword and then either edit in something like paint or simply submit the answers according to the clues. Open to any suggestions on how we should do it.

Enjoy, take your time….. It took forever to compile!! :roll: :lol: :lol:
