Snowflake #1 - PDF | Solution (PDF)
Back with the last variety puzzle of the year! I was recently solving this old Hex variety cryptic and thought it would be fun to make a fully interlocking grid using the same snowflake framework. So the end result is not a cryptic, mind you, just a standard variety puzzle with a bonus message to unravel. Testers thought this was a nice moderate challenge - not too difficult but with a satisfying bit of resistance. PDF only for this format - hope you enjoy!
The monthly bundles have been updated through December, and I've also bundled up the 2021 Second Half bundles for both Aries Rows Garden and Aries Freestyle. ARG Year 9 and AF Year 5 kicks off next week, and a reminder that subscriptions are always open! I'd love if you joined the weekly fun.
Thanks for stopping by and solving in 2021! Personally speaking it was a challenging year, and I'm grateful to have this outlet and I'm especially grateful for the support of all solvers. I hope the puzzles provided a healthy distraction this year! Here's for a better 2022.
