126 December 2020 Famous Skeptics (3)

It’s a belated follow-up to our earlier Famous Skeptics Crosswords published  in December 2014:

December 2014 SKEPTICAL CROSSWORD PUZZLE

and in July 2016:

July 2016 Skeptical Crossword

Of the twenty-three people featured in this month’s crossword, all but one are different to the twenty-six skeptics of the 2016 crossword. That common link, fittingly, is James Randi.

There’s also a new batch of Picture Puzzles, Mixed Bag Questions (Trivia/General Knowledge), and a Logic & Maths Problems set with worked solutions.

All on the PUZZLES PAGE.
