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

Classics Collection: Kakuro

Hi folks,
the Classics Collection continues! There will probably be another Beginners Contest next, but we already have more puzzle types in mind to go on with our series. Kakuro is certainly a “classic” style; it is not particularly rich in solving techniques, but those who enjoy arithmetic-based logical puzzles will typically get what they pay for.

Classics Collection: Easy as ABC

Hi folks,
I am hoping to host another Beginners Contest soon, covering five more classic puzzle styles. That said, here is the next set of our puzzle series: Easy as ABC. This puzzle type goes back as far as I can remember, and it is as basic a logical puzzle style as I can think of.

Classics Collection: Masyu

It is time for the next installment of our series of classic puzzle styles. Today’s set is about Masyu, a puzzle type which is perhaps not as “classic” as some of the previous ones. But due to its regular appearance in major puzzle events for many years and its undiminished popularity, I think it deserves its place in this series. Here is the new PDF file: Masyu

Classics Collection: Tents

Hi folks,
even if it’s a tad early, a Happy New Year to all of you! 2020 has been a unique year for most of us, but since there are already many retrospective articles around (and I have posted a look back some time ago), let me just say that I intend to continue doing what I do on my website and this blog in 2021. One prime element of my current puzzle activities is the Classics Collection, so this is definitely something I want to keep alive. Here is the first group of the new year: Tents
