## New logic puzzles

For fans of all other kinds of logic puzzles

### New logic puzzles

Hi All,

I design logic puzzles for fun, wasn't sure where to introduce 'em, thought people in this discussion board might be interested,

Here are the rules:

The goal is to connect all the islands(Circles) by drawing a series of bridges(Lines) between the islands. The bridges must follow certain criteria:
• Bridges must not cross each other.
• They may only run horizontally, vertically, or diagonally (45 degrees)
• At most one bridge connects a pair of islands.
• The number of bridges connected to each island must match the number on that island.
• The bridges must connect the islands into a single connected group.
• Some bridges are given initially, the goal is to find the remaining bridges

Note: Dotted gray lines show possible bridges

You can find samples at http://www.parspicks.com/Sanaku/

You are given the puzzle on the left, and you are supposed to find bridges connecting the circles, such that the number of bridges connected to each circle matched the number on that circle

That website gave me only one puzzle, and it gave the solution too. I was hoping it would present a few more puzzles, without solutions given.

I am still thinking of transforming some the Chess tour puzzles into network type puzzles (Pattern and lines instead of numbers). I've seen a few of those around (Not your variant Kousha as it has a different concept). This would work for King, Wazir and Ferz but potentially for all chess pieces. The programming and visuals take time and therefore it is a project that may or may not get to see the light of day ...

Hi Tarek,

I didn't quite get what you meant? Could you please elaborate?

Also sent you a pm, but it appears in my outbox, I'm not sure if you've received it

Thanks,

I replied to your PM. My comment is referencing the word "network" that Pat used. It therefore doesn't describe your puzzle and my comment can be considered off-topic

OK, thanks. Perhaps inside the blue arrow you could add a note saying "Click here for more puzzles".
