The Foxer

The 25 pictures in a cluster foxer are arranged in 5 discretely/discreetly themed clusters. Pictures in a particular cluster must be cardinally contiguous to be valid. For example,  a1, a2, a3, a4, b4 is a possible cluster, unlike c1, c2, c3, c4, d5. To fully defox today's enlargeable puzzle identify the themes and constituent images of all five clusters.

Below is a list of 30 Things Wot Are Yellow (‘things’ is used here in its broadest possible sense). Entries have been stripped of vowels and had any inter-word spaces repositioned. For example, if Bart Simpson was present, he might appear as…

The 127-cell honeycomb below is a fancy form of wordsearch in which every cell is used, and words can curl and zigzag but never overlap. Each hive foxer has a unique theme (some past themes: roses, gold, postage stamps...) Identifying this theme is a vital part of the defoxing process. Today’s puzzle contains 24 words 23 words and one acronym.

Tired of fabricating word ladders, Roman has moved onto word chains. To completely defox today's you’ll need to provide my Chief Foxer Setter with the sequence of 24 words suggested by the clues below.

Sorry, Combat Mission turn tales have put the mockers on this week's Flare Path. The only Rock, Paper, Shotgun column happy to answer the door in a smoking jacket and fez will return next Friday with a bountiful competition and, possibly, a wargame review. All I can offer today is an invitation to participate in the defence of Caent, and a fiendish word puzzle inspired by the…

The Foxer

Warm-up Foxer (Where am I?) I'm standing outside a building that has this symbol on its façade. The street signs in this town are bilingual. Two kilometres away is a 16th-Century fortification. If I flew around the world at this latitude I'd pass over this island. I'm a mile from a statue of an extinct deer. I can see a neighbouring country. The street I'm…

The Foxer

Warm-up Foxer (Where am I?) I'm looking at an extremely handsome Swedish-made diesel locomotive. I'm in a landlocked country that has a horizontal tricolour for a flag. If I flew around the globe at this latitude I'd pass over one European capital. I'm half a mile from the shore of a lake and roughly the same distance from the bust of a Nobel Prize winner. In…

Warm-up Foxer (What am I?) I'm one of a kind. I'm as tall as a Jumbo Jet. I make Roman think of Kiev and the Old Bailey. I look north-east. I share a latitude with three Belgian cities. I have something in common with the NZ PM and a ship involved in Operation Dynamo. On a clear day I can see a foreign land. I'm not…

Warm-up Foxer (Where am I?) I'm at the same latitude as one of Portugal's autonomous regions. I can see two suspension bridges. I'm in a country that has produced two Formula One World Drivers' Championship champions. Roughly thirteen miles away is one of the places pictured in today's Feature Foxer. I can see an invasive plant that came originally from South Africa. I'm standing in the…

The Foxer

Warm-up Foxer (Where am I?) I'm ten metres from a climbing frame and a sandpit. I can see more than one hundred balconies. The country I'm in is a NATO member and has a bicolour flag. 150 metres away is a sizeable marshalling yard. I'm being watched by a tabby cat and a woman in a high-vis vest. It would take me about minutes to walk to…

Warm-up Foxer (What am I?) I'm from Catalonia. For a while I was a record holder. I come in a container the size of a large suitcase. This container has wheels and a handle. I have something in common with a set of tea cards released by Brooke Bond in the early Sixties, an album released by Motörhead in the late Seventies, and this Boeing…

The Foxer

Warm-up Foxer (Where am I?) I'm standing outside a restaurant that shares a name with a Chuck Connors movie, a brand of cigarettes, and a British paddle steamer that served during both World Wars. I can see several dinosaurs including a T. Rex and a Triceratops. I'm 80 metres from a likeness of this man. I'm in a mineral-rich landlocked land that sent a citizen into space before…

The Foxer

Warm-up Foxer (What am I?) I'm roughly twenty-eight years old. I have something in common with both hearts and diamonds. My homeland is a country with a 'w' in its name. My smaller offspring can be found in two European capitals. I'm indebted to a ripped flower. If she was alive today, this woman would definitely approve of me. I have my own website. I'm…

The Foxer

Warm-up Foxer (Where am I?) I'm standing outside a cheese shop, admiring a rather smart blue and white electric multiple unit. The street name suggests a plant used to make a local beverage was once grown in this vicinity. I'm in a country that's in the G20 but not the G8. I'm 9.78 kilometres from an obelisk and 11.64 kilometres from the statue of a…

Warm-up Foxer (Where am I?) I'm standing next to a blue gate. A nearby sign points out (in a language that isn't English) that the gate is an "emergency entrance with manual opening". I can see two orange Bo-Bo diesel locomotives. I'm 500 metres from a Commonwealth War Cemetery containing over 2000 graves and less than a kilometre from an airport named after a composer.…

The Foxer

Warm-up Foxer (What am I?) Some people think I shouldn't exist. Parts of me are solar-powered. I have a lexical connection with a WW2 AFV. I was completed in the year a famous pachyderm died. I'm in the Guinness Book of Records. I'm currently roughly the same height as an average British male adult. I have something in common with the protagonist of a Thomas…
