This is one of my family’s Christmas traditions. And that of a lot of other families in the northern provinces. Solving the Dr. Denker puzzle from Dagblad van het Noorden. Forty cryptic images around a theme. This year is the 45th edition and its theme is fishing. I asked my mother for a copy. As all newspapers were sold out, she took a picture and sent it to me so I could print it. The past few days the Man and I solved nearly half. Not a bad score as it usually takes more people to come up with associations to solve all of them. Another week left to solve the other half.
