Puzzle Ramayan – Loops


If there are some very very patient individuals who still keep tabs on this blog (and thanks for sticking around), I do plan to make it active again. This doesn’t necessarily mean I’ll start posting puzzles (I have too many other places to submit to these days), but there are some long overdue recaps for WSC-WPC 2015 which I plan to do, after which I’ll also review other contests which happen.

However, I expect all of this to happen only from April. The reason for this is I fell significantly behind schedule with my projects in 2015 for many different reasons, and I’ve been making ground in 2016 to get back to a position where I’m up to date with everything I’m doing. I estimate this to happen by the end of March, after which I’ll have more time for recaps and reviews.

The reason I’m posting this, other than acting as a random update, is to notify the readers about a Puzzle Contest happening this weekend on LMI. Its the 7th round of the ongoing series, Puzzle Ramayan. It is based on Loop puzzles, authored by me. We’ve targeted this tournament for newcomers and beginners, so in this round I’ve spent some time on the Instruction booklet and experimented with providing steps for solving the types appearing on the contest. We’re constantly looking at ways to encourage new solvers to participate, so if you’re new to puzzles and think this is a good way, let us know, by participating! 😉

I hope everyone participates and enjoys the contest!



Puzzle No. 493 : Maxi Loop + LMI Patreon Update

Hello, dearest readers! Its… been a while. Sorry about that. I feel I’ll have more time for this place come May. For now, I’d like to draw your attention to the fact that Logic Masters India has started its own Patronage system. Please check out our page on Patreon and on LMI itself. The Puzzle pack rewards are currently all written by me, but future ones will definitely have other Indian authors involved too. If you like the hosting features LMI has to offer and/or find the rewards enticing enough, please consider supporting us. I’ve taken up a few things on behalf of LMI here in India, all towards making our group more recognized in the country. Funding certainly helps this.

Anyway, I feel a little bad that I’m only making a blog post when I want to promote something, so here’s a Maxi Loop puzzle to go along with it. I hope you enjoy it!

Rules for Maxi Loop.
