The Foxer

Warm-up Foxer (Where am I?)

I'm in a landlocked country that won no medals at the 2016 Summer Olympics. I'm standing at the bottom of a flight of twenty granite steps. If I circled the globe at this latitude I'd pass over four South American and six African countries. I'm 1.5km from a stadium where Gordon Sumner and The Boss have performed. I'm 15km from an international airport. I can see a pair of antelopes and a massive RPG-7. Asians shaped my surroundings. This place is more than 50 times larger than its name suggests.

Feature Foxer

Hold your horses! This might look like a bog-standard collage foxer but actually it's a new form. To fully defox today's jpeg first identify all twelve cryptic clues then construct four three-clue sequences with your findings. Say you spotted a Long Range Desert Group badge, an Archer tank destroyer, and a desktop shortcut for Goat Simulator; that might indicate that one of the four sequences was zodiacal  (Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn). Also noticed a Baker rifle, the USS Davison, and a snap of DeForest Kelley? Maybe one of the others is 'Doctor Who actors' (Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy). Got the idea?
