This week is a continuation of last week's idea. I think this is a variant with lots and lots of potential. This isn't a particular beautiful puzzle to look at, or to solve, but at least it should provide something of a challenge. This certainly took a while to test solve last night!
Oh and the rules: consecutive terms of the sequence to be place on the marked line should differ by at most 2. Which means they can differ by 0, 1 or 2. Enjoy!

Hello, I was wondering what inspired the choice of name "Chinese Whispers".ReplyDelete
Hi: it’s taken from a children’s game where messages are passed along a line and end up being slightly garbled at each step: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_whispersReplyDelete
I’m not sure how politically correct it is these days but it seems to describe the solving mechanic nicely.
I’m sure I saw something similar very recently, but it used a completely different name.
