Apparently I’m too lazy to keep up with the blog format. I do write some puzzles occasionally, but I mostly share them with the Discord server I’m in, Puzzlers Club. (Which in turn is a spin-off from Patzers Club.) As it is, I just dump a Puz-PRE link without any other comment, and let them solve it. (Or otherwise, I usually take a picture of the puzzle grid, since somehow I write my puzzles on paper again, if not on Puz-PRE directly; only rarely that I make a clean image like the other puzzles in this blog.) But in any case, I didn’t have to write… like, a formal blog post like the other puzzles I have. I’m too lazy, I guess.
So… I guess that means either I need to get back to post more puzzles here, or otherwise make a new format for posting puzzles. I once posted a puzzle on Twitter, although that’s a ridiculous puzzle. I might probably move over to Twitter, but not sure. For the moment, the best way to get my puzzles is in fact to join Puzzlers Club on Discord.
But since I’m sure you want something, here are a few puzzle-related things:
- I invented the genre Maximal Archipelago, that appeared in World Puzzle Championships a month ago. I heard it got tied third place among the many innovative genres submitted?
- I wrote another genre together with some Puzzlers Club people. Cyclones: Put a positive integer to each circle such that a circle with number cannot reach any other circle with number within less than steps (along adjacent circles), and can reach exactly two other circles with number within exactly steps.
- I wrote a few puzzles for a Puzzlers Club puzzle collection thing, and I was particularly happy with a couple of them. But I can’t share them because they are part of the collection. So I guess you just need to join Puzzlers Club.
And yeah, I’ll update with my decision later, on whether to keep this blog for puzzle-related things or move elsewhere.
