Re: Where should a beginner start with puzzles?

Also, since nobody mentioned, I just recently found out about Krazydad's website: https://krazydad.com/ It has a huge amount of puzzles of some different kinds. It looks like a great source as well. Krazydad puzzles certainly aren’t bad. The thing to bear in mind is that they are computer generated...

Re: Where should a beginner start with puzzles?

By the way, solving half the puzzles would be a really good result! It would almost certainly place you in the top 100. Wow, maybe I overestimated myself then. Maybe I can reach 20% then :lol: I feel that I'm not able to solve anything there yet :? Maybe 12 months it's a bit too much, but I think I...

Re: Where should a beginner start with puzzles?

The thing is, being a total amateur, and knowing that these puzzles in general are for people with a fair share of knowledge in sudoku and the other grid based stuff, so I've set a goal to enter in this contests in a year from now.

Re: Where should a beginner start with puzzles?
