The connecting wall, from Victoria Coren’s brilliant BBC4 quiz show Only Connect, is legendary among UK puzzle boffins. And if you’ve not tried one, now is the time to start.
This week, the connecting wall joins the already fearsome line-up on Radio Times magazine’s puzzles page. To celebrate, we’re running a competition with a prize for the winner of a trip to Paris for two. To win, you’ll need the solutions to not one wall, but four.
We’re gently welcoming the uninitiated with the first grid, below, which we’ve solved for you. We’ll give you three more over the next three days – and for those, you’re on your own. (Connecting wall aficionados will note that, unlike on the show and its website, our walls don’t tell you if your groups of four are correct as you go along, making them even more difficult…)
If you can’t wait, all four grids, plus details of how to enter, are in the new issue of Radio Times magazine, which is in shops now.
