Fancy yourself as a skilled quizzer? Why not sink your teeth into these (rather challenging) puzzles set by Frank Paul, the artist and winner of the BBC quiz show Only Connect. We are offering a free one-year subscription to the person who can solve both.

PUZZLE 1

1. Spot the similarities. Each of the two pictures can be divided into seventy-seven squares, each one indicated by a grid reference such as A1. Eight of the squares in Picture 1 are identical to squares in Picture 2, except that some have been rotated by 90º or 180º.

PUZZLE 2

Fill in each blank space to form words which match the definitions. In each case, the word or name will match the definition whether or not you remove the letter or letters given in brackets. (For instance, if the clue were “Spherical: _ _ (T) _ _ _”, the answer would be “RO(T)UND”, since either “round” or “rotund” would be a valid answer.)
