Happily yes, without such degrees of freedom, the game would be dead for long :roll:

Another point .....

A while ago there were a shortage of players.
It seems we have more enthusiastic players now ....
The game would also completely change if we had say for example 10 players or more ! Or would it ?

I could easily publish my own idiots guide to making puzzles
with links to program download and specific command lines for each which work

do we really want that ?

Maximum rating by clue count

Here are some more statistics. The table below shows the maximum rating achieved for each of the possible clue counts. Thus, in the current game, the existing record is 11.2/11.2/10.1. A target to beat.

I have updated the table in the previous post to take account of the new record that papy999 has set. Interestingly, it beats the record for 24 clues too.
