Jumble Spoiler – 11/01/18

Visual Description:  The idle wealthy.

LAGEE  =  EAGLE,  RISVU  =  VIRUS,  RIYFUP  =  PURIFY,  VACRIA  =  CAVIAR   —   Giving us:  EEVSRICVA

Clue/Question:  He liked to gamble by playing roulette and then blackjack or – – –

Answer:  VICE VERSA

(Ooh!  Bells and whistles, and bright shiny objects!  Not to mention the stench of cigar/cigarette smoke . . . and desperation!  Much stinkier than this pun, for sure.  Occasional, casual gambling can be fun, I suppose, but it can quickly become an overriding vice.  If I had that guy’s kind of money I think I could find better ways of spending it.

All old familiar clue words today.  Three of the jumbles are coming up as new, with “vacria” having definitely been used some time in the past.  The answer letter layout was a nicely cryptic jumble.  I didn’t find it to be obvious.  The V’s, and the final solution layout, made getting the answer fairly easy for me.

Great detail in Jeff’s super cartoon today!  From the blackjack table to the roulette wheel – and the craps table behind the guy – right down to the chips, and the olive and swizzle-stick in the gamblers’ cocktails.  An overall very satisfying Jumble!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
