Hi witch,

considering the difficulty of this weeks extreme, i would estimate about 1 to 2 min.

Loser claimed to have solved last weeks puzzle in 5 minutes using BCA, so we should give them 30 sec to 1 min this week :)

This time BCA doesn't give the clue immediately, that one diggit is a must. ;o)

Two UR's, few SI's, few wings & settis later I realised this was a tough one for me. Maybe there's a smoother way.

CE makes it..
Nice one

Very nice. Didn't see, or use, an UR. But hard work.

Pleasant straightforward puzzle but I'll reserve this thread for discussion of it.
