Cracking The Cryptic $20 Patron

reward item

We have had requests from some generous supporters to include a higher base-level Patreon-tier as it would allow them to support the channel at a higher level even though we're currently unable to guarantee extra rewards for such a level.  This tier includes all benefits due at lower tiers (obviously).
Includes Discord benefits




Welcome to Cracking The Cryptic's Patreon Page!  We are hoping that some of our viewers might consider becoming our Patrons and make small donations to show their appreciation for the time/effort we go to to create our videos.  Each month we publish a special "reward" puzzle for our Patrons to say "thank you" for their support.  

Cracking The Cryptic is the YouTube channel of Mark Goodliffe and Simon Anthony, two of the UK's finest puzzle solvers.  We produce several videos a week showing you how to solve difficult puzzles, mainly focusing on Sudoku or cryptic crosswords.  

Mark is the reigning UK National Sudoku Champion as well as the multiple winner of The Times Crossword Championship.  Simon is the former record holder for consecutive solutions to The Listener Crossword (320 in a row).

Both Simon and Mark have represented the UK on many occasions at the World Sudoku Championships and the World Puzzle Championships.
