### Re: Patterns Game

:::comment:::
as an exercise I wondered how many ed puzzles there were with this 20C pattern ....
I am up to nearly 750K ... how many have others got ... or have you exhaustively searched ?
There of course finite numbers of minimal 19s and 18s within this pattern too .....

I don't keep a count, but it's far less than that (in general, most puzzles of the form x.y/1.z/1.z never see the light of day). The real point is, did you find a new rating? M.

nope ... all your puzzles and ratings were there, including JPF's more puzzles

I guess the less clues in a pattern the more puzzles with */*/1.2, and this pattern had more puzzles than your average 20 clue
94% had *.*/*.*/1.2 ... which I usually exclude from furthur searching in trying to get harder puzzles

730000 minimal and non-minimal are in the list, there may well be significantly more ...
there were 38000 minimal 19C and 338 minimal 18C puzzles too

Some of which are surely listed in the Game 321 results. M.
