Gridless 002

ORDERS


When this month's instalment of our series of Gridless puzzles arrived at Tom Lion's office, the puzzle editor suspected something had gone awry in its transmission!

When submitted, our compilers' puzzle manuscripts are frequently in need of some editorial assistance but this one with its injudicious arrangement of numbers and clues was a complete dog's breakfast! However, we were told the puzzle had to be published as it appears here (in its apparent mess) and we have, well, followed orders.

This Gridless will lead to an answerline which will hopefully lead in turn to some order!
