Puzzle No. 62-82 : My birthday puzzles!

Because, even though I’m gonna be stuck in college on my birthday, doesn’t mean all of you shouldn’t enjoy yourselves. The regular readers of this blog will know, I’ve been struggling to even put up a single puzzle on most days. So in preparing this, obviously most would be easy, and some of them may even fall under the category of “Evil Zingers”. However, I do think quite a few of them are fun, and the last one is probably one of my best. Heh, anyway, you decide.

This set features my first attempt at a Liar Loop, and a non-variant Slalom. 🙂

That should do for today’s puzzle post I suppose. Enjoy!

Update : Apparently the PDF is crashing for some people. The error is for some reason that it requires a Japanese Fonts plug in. For what its worth, I downloaded the same and its completely fine. But of course, you may want an alternative, so I’m uploading just the PNG formats of all puzzles in the rar file, with a txt file for the rules and descriptions. The solutions PDF is fine I suppose.


Hope that fixes any issues. 🙂

Puzzle No. 35, 36 : Tapa Variations!

I might be out the entire day tomorrow, so just in case 🙂

Anyway, was just playing around with these as the TVCs are coming up.  If they’re rubbish, then I sincerely apologize for wasting your time. 😉

Puzzle 35 –

Anglers Tapa –

Using the Angler clues on the outside, draw paths to the fishes, these paths must be part of a connected Tapa wall, using Tapa clues inside the grid. The fish are part of the cell count for Angler clues, but not part of the Tapa wall. The wall cannot cross cells other than the Angler paths.
