Puzzles for Sunday 5 February 2017

How did you do with yesterday’s little brainteaser? Initially I thought of EAT/ATE/TEA/ETA, but then I got excited when I spotted ASP/APS/PAS/SAP/SPA. You’ll notice I’ve crossed out APS because it’s not actually a word! So a 4-combo was my best. Get in touch if you can do better 🙂

Here are today’s puzzles. Answers will be published tomorrow. Yesterdays’s answers

Puzzles for Saturday 4 February 2017

Today I bring three more juicy puzzles to the table. I also have a nice little brainteaser: What 3 letter word can you think of that has the most English anagrams? There are only 6 possible ways to arrange three distinct letters (ABC, ACB, BAC, BCA, CAB, CBA), so you can’t have more than that. Answers to this brainteaser and today’s puzzles will be published tomorrow.

Crikey, yesterday’s Pathfinder was tough! Apparently two of those elements [1,2] have entered the Periodic Table since I left school. Check how it was done by visiting  yesterdays’s answers.

There are three fresh puzzles for you to have a go at today. The Codeword is easy peasy. See how long it takes you.

Hello!

Hello and welcome to my brand new puzzle blog!

I’ve been spending a lot of my spare time in recent months working on a software project to help me compile different puzzles. I’m now happy to share with you some of the fruits of my labour.

For every day in February I’m going to be posting three puzzles for you to print off and have a go at (with solutions coming the day after).

There are 6 types of puzzle I’m initially working on, and these will be the ones you see this month. I have tried to provide a mixture of difficulties, so there should be plenty to have a go at no matter what level you are. The puzzles this month are:

  • Codeword (21 in Feb) – in a mixture of Medium and Hard
  • Sudoku (14 in Feb) – in a mixture of Easy Medium and Hard
  • SudokuXL (14 in Feb) – in a mixture of Easy and Medium
  • Pathfinder (7 in Feb) – in a mixture of Easy Medium and Hard
  • Word Pyramid (7 in Feb) – in a mixture of Medium and Hard
  • Synagrams (21 in Feb) – Mostly Hard

So that’s a total of 21 + 14 + 14 + 7 + 7 + 21 = 84 for you to try out.

As the month progresses I may tweak things a little depending on feedback. Oh, and on the matter of feedback, I’ll try to make it as easy as possible to give me feedback for the puzzles, and will regularly prompt you to do so!

I hope you find the solving the puzzles as fun and challenging as I found it to make them

Happy Puzzling,

Jack
