    After the success of this thread I wanted to start a generic cryptic crossword thread!

    If you've never solved a cryptic before then the guardian has a nice guide for it. This webpage is pretty handy too!

    Please spoiler all answers! Here we go, a few to start off:

    mounted card record (8)

    nerve centre hangs under brain (3)

    Doormen tuts at pupil's chamber (7, 4)

        Ah okay, I'll spoiler my answer next time. I went for the easiest, because I'm not very good at cryptic crosswords.
