SOLVEOUR Shab­bat-friendly cross­word. Writ­ing is not re­quired — just use your Scrab­ble board and tiles to spell out the an­swers to the cryp­tic clues.

HOW TO PLAY: Use the let­ter tiles from the game of Scrab­ble to spell out the an­swers to the clues be­low. Do not use the two blank tiles. Place the tiles on the Scrab­ble board ac­cord­ing to the grid ref­er­ences given with the clues. If you suc­cess­fully com­plete the puz­zle, you will have used all 98 tiles.
