Cryptic Musical Instruments

Cryptic Musical Instruments

This handout round features 15 cryptic crossword style clues to be deciphered to give the names of 15 musical instruments. For example, the correct answer to the clue "Famous person takes Roman one" would be "Sitar", because a famous person is a "star" and if this takes "i", the Roman numeral for one, it can spell "S i tar".

A few of these cryptic clues are fairly straightforward to get teams up and running, but there are also some that may take a great deal of puzzling over before teams arrive at the correct answer, so this round should keep teams entertained for a while.

It is recommended that these cryptic clues are used in a quiz as a handout round. For more information on handout rounds and our recommended use for them in quizzes click here
