PostPosted: Fri Apr 09, 2010 5:38 am    Post subject: Puzzle Primer Reply with quote

Once again, an announcement that is slightly different to a normal contest. We have finished rewriting what was Back To Basics, and it is now relaunched in the guise of Puzzle Primer. All examples and (notably) puzzles are new, so there is something different for everyone. The topics covered remain unchanged.

All previous progress has been removed, so you will need to start again to work through Puzzle Primer.

For anyone who did not see the previous incarnation, this is a tutorial of many of the techniques used in puzzles on Puzzletome and other sites, together with worked examples and test puzzles to try out your newly won skills. Note that there are no statistics or leader board associated with Puzzle Primer, so you can go through at your leisure and with no pressure. Smile

Will there be a forum for discussing puzzles and methods?

There is one. Do I take it from that, that you cannot see it?

I can't see it, although at this stage all I have done is the example puzzles, and not the X section.
