#135: Bramble

Bramble was recently implemented on Kudamono, so I thought I’d make another one for the blog to celebrate.

#134: Escher Skyscrapers

Do you also find that Skyscrapers as a genre is just not cursed enough?

#133: Logic Masters '24 Qualification Round

I co-authored the qualification round for this year’s Logic Masters (the German puzzle championship), together with Thomas Fink (whom you might know as Phistomefel). This post contains all of my puzzles from the round, plus three bonus puzzles.

#132: UKPA Open '24 — Snakes & Hydras

Here’s my first contribution to 2024’s competitive puzzle calendar. I wrote a round for the UKPA Open Puzzle Tournament which happened last weekend. The round concept was based on a puzzle I made for last year’s EnigMarch.

#131: Hinge

I don’t post a lot of vanilla puzzles in existing genres here (those often end up on Puzzle Square), but I’m particularly fond of this construction.

#130: New Genre — Bramble

I’ve created a new genre and would you believe it, it doesn’t involve drawing loops or even paths. This post introduces the genre with a small example puzzle and three larger puzzles of increasing difficulty.

#129: Foggy Twilight Kurotto

After making the Twilight Kurotto for Black-out Friday, I figured these rules would also make for an interesting fog-of-war puzzle. You’ll have to solve this one in Penpa.

#128: Twilight Kurotto for Black-Out Friday

The Griddle has organised another pack of shading puzzles for Black(-Out) Friday. Last year, I made a Twilight Cave, so this year I wanted to explore a Twilight variant for a different genre. Check out the full PDF over on The Griddle, with many more excellent shading puzzles.

#127: Hexagonal Compass

I’m a little surprised that I haven’t seen Compass done on a hex grid before.

#126: Rail Pool / Masyu

This was originally going to be a co-op puzzle for two solvers. But after I had finished the puzzle, I realised that it would work much better as a hybrid puzzle for a single solver.
