Cryptic Anagram Puzzle Edited by Vicki A Benge
Cryptic crosswords and other puzzles use anagrams as clues. An anagram is a word or phrase created by rearranging the letters of another word or phrase. Many times the clues are nonsense phrases. In the puzzle above, ALL of the clues are anagrams and the answers fit the "Title Category".
Using the category title as a guide, rearrange the letters of the nonsense phrases to form an appropriate answer in the boxes across.
An example of a cryptic anagram:
Category Title: American Sports Stars
Clue: Body mart
Answer: Tom Brady
