Game of Life

(His room full of LIFE!  TV showing a live sporting event, his wife asking how his day was, his kids at his feet . . .  Ya can’t get much better than that.  Well, maybe a nice cat or dog next to one of the kids would have really iced it.  And, if you have the full sized Jumble, you should see that his kids are playing The Game of Life!  These are clues with a bit of nuance!  Splendid jumbling today.  We even had another surprising new clue word, in “blind”.  The word has probably been part of numerous answers, but this appears to be the first time it’s been used a clue word.  One more for the ralis95 clue word database!  And the answer letter layout was sublime.  Nothing to suggest LIVING ROOM the way these letters played out.  Great job of making the dad look beat!  A fine Jumble indeed!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Very easy today. Zip, zip, zip. I wish you did Quiptoquip, which is in the Ft Myers News-Press. It has a different answer from Quiptoquote and is difficult for me. I get about every other one

    Hi, Pat! I’ve seen that in some other newspapers. Doesn’t that have some kind of additional clue to it? I prefer the Cryptoquote, because it gives you just the ciphered message. Better challenge. — YUR
