Half a Life

Recently I have been moaning a lot about how puzzle creation has moved in a direction that I find, shall we say, unappealing. Today I will take a brief look back and describe how – in my perception – the scenery has changed over the years. Puzzle trends are evolving all the time, hence we can take for granted that I am not really covering a lot of ground here. I guess we should view this as just a short trip down on memory lane.

Classics Collection: Hakyuu

Hi folks,
the Classics Collection continues! As usual, the idea is to present five popular puzzle types and then host another Beginners Contest on the Logic Masters Germany website. For today’s post I picked Hakyuu, also known as Ripple Effect, a puzzle style I used to be quite fond of in the past. In fact, I still like Hakyuu puzzles a lot, it is just that they have become quite rare over the years. Still, I feel it is a worthy addition to this puzzle series. Here is the PDF file: Hakyuu

A puzzler’s life, Part 3

Hi folks,
quite some time has passed since my last post, and in fact not much has happened on my end. The Classics Collection is supposed to continue soon, but I have not yet found the time to design a larger number of puzzles again. Somehow I feel like I am experiencing the puzzle equivalent of writer’s block; since I have never been a professional writer, this may be a silly comparison, of course. In any case, no promises as to when the next puzzles will appear on this blog.
