The Foxer

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.

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.

Below is a list of 30 Things Wot You Might Find Inside the Arctic or Antarctic Circle (‘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 Roald Amundsen was present, he might appear as… RLDMND SN

The Flare Path: A Filch of Foxers

The Flare Path turns seven this week. Here in the UK that means its base chance of spotting fairies decreases to 0.4%, and, in the event of it being arrested for murder or treason, it can no longer opt to be tried by a jury of stuffed toys and action figures. Growing up is a mixed blessing and no mistake. Unlike today's competition-crammed column which…

The Foxer

The following enlargeable collage doesn't have a theme. Defox it by identifying the eight clue pairs. For example, a silhouette of this RAF trainer might go with an image of this LPG tanker... a pic of the 34th US President might pair with a photo of this member of the Dutch resistance.

The Foxer

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 theme (some previous ones: roses, gold, postage stamps, and The 39 Steps). Identifying this is a vital part of the defoxing process. Today’s puzzle contains 21 words and one acronym.

The Foxer

Earlier this week, while decluttering his phone, Roman removed hundreds of photographs taken during days out at museums, shows, and galas. Twelve of these images make up the background of today's enlargeable, themeless collage. To defox, simply identify the dozen vehicles or weapons in the green pictures and tell my Chief Foxer Setter which of the indigo-coloured clues goes with each background image.

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.

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…
