Anyhow, enough of my more neurotic ramblings. The upshot of it all is no nikoli.com, no croco, no crosswords, and the horribly scrambled Rubik's cube on my shelf will have to sit there taunting me with its lack of order. As far as the blog is concerned, whilst writing a puzzle isn't quite the same as solving one, there is obviously a significant overlap, and besides, you'd hope I'd at least be testing the puzzles I put out, right?
Still, I'm never one to pass up the chance to make metaphorical pancakes - or indeed to pass on a vague theme - so earlier this week I hastily put together six puzzles. The theme will hopefully become apparent.
This week, yajilin, a theming favourite of mine. I can't remember exactly how hard this is now, but I suspect somewhere between easy and medium. Enjoy!
EDIT: There was originally a missing clue, which apparently took solutions down from one to none. This intrigues me!
