The Listener ceases publication

With the end of the NZ Listener announced last week, no more issues will be published after 1 April 2020. This means there will be no more Tossman cryptic crosswords unless a purchaser is found for the magazine, or Tossman finds another home for his puzzles.

We are sorry to see the end of the Tossman puzzles in the Listener. We’ve enjoyed solving these puzzles and posting solutions, and the interaction with other enthusiasts in the comments sections.

We will still publish solutions for the Kropotkin and Observer Everyman puzzles published in the Saturday edition of the NZ Herald.


Follow us on Facebook for updates on when our solutions are published.
