Monthly Prize Puzzle (August 2018)

Too Many Words by Alchemi

+ – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – +

Each clue contains a superfluous word which has to be ignored when solving the clue. Read in clue order, the first letters of these words pose a question, the answer to which belongs in the box.

+ – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – + – +

Solvers should enter the answer to the question, and nothing else, in the answer box below.  There is no need to send a completed grid or solution, or to explain your answer. Closing date for entries is midnight on August 18th 2018. The winner will receive their choice of any of the Telegraph Crossword Books. In the event of two or more entries being received from the same solver all of these entries will be disqualified, except that mistakes can be corrected by using the box below and clearly requesting that the earlier entry be withdrawn. The winner will be drawn at random from the correct entries. Editor’s decision is final.

Please note that, due to punitive postal charges, while the competition is open to all, the prize is only available to UK solvers.

Feedback on puzzles is welcomed and will be passed on to setters. A review will be published after the closing date.
