In an Only Connect Wall, 16 arbitrarily arranged words, phrases or names must be sorted into four groups of four, each group with a different thematic link. In this puzzle, such a wall is formed using answers to the 16 clues that appear neither at their correct numbers nor with their correct letter-counts. Wordplay for each such clue ignores one answer letter; in printed order, these letters spell an instruction solvers must carry out in the final grid. “Wall” answers are symmetrically disposed in the grid. All other clues and entries are normal. The shortened form at 12 is in Collins, SOED and ODE; its regular form is in Chambers. 27 is in SOED.
