A good game that time...sorry I missed the scheduled time.

Please can we have the exact start time[GMT]for the next game.

Regarding the pattern, I know some people regard symetrical puzzles aesthetically more pleasing, but with a non-symmetrical puzzle you are increasing the number of possible puzzles by at least x4. As we have seen the number of different minimal puzzles of a specific pattern is finite - it might mean we have a few 10+ puzzles.

Dealer's choice of course !

this probably goes under the category of don't ask don't tell but I think I get another -50 penalty
Code: Select all

Indeed, although we know that using S. Explainer for puzzles with rating 10+ is awfully boring.

Indeed, although the game is not over :
rule wrote:The game ends if no puzzle has been posted for 3 days.

I'm still trying to find a 60 th rating... just for the fun,
but I suggest to reduce this period of time to 2 days.
