Re: Quadrata: A Free Puzzle Blog

I just made a snowflake puzzle for the holiday this year. Consecutive numbers are numbers which are one apart such as 1 and 2, or 4 and 5. A lettered dot between diamonds means the numbers in those diamonds are consecutive, and a blank dot means they are not. In addition, the letter is ‘L’ for low i...

Re: Quadrata: A Free Puzzle Blog

Another new concept: Dots between cells indicate consecutive numbers, and the colors indicate the size. Dots are also placed whenever possible between cells of the same cage, so lack of a dot means something! Solution, PDFs, black and white version and lots more information at: https://quadratablog....

Re: Quadrata: A Free Puzzle Blog

Here's a larger version of my last puzzle, now in full 9x9 glory! If you’re new to prime numbers you only need to know that the first seven primes are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, and 17 to try it. The numbers in this puzzle reveal the sum of the entries in adjacent cells only when exactly one of those numbe...

Re: Quadrata: A Free Puzzle Blog

This next puzzle is a little mathy in the sense that it uses the primes, but really all you need to know is that the first three prime numbers are 2, 3, and 5. Basically, if you see a number between cells then exactly one of those cells contains a prime, and that number tells you the sum. A diamond ...

Re: Quadrata: A Free Puzzle Blog

Here's a puzzle I designed for a math conference that took place last weekend. You don't need to know much more than which numbers divide 2020 to attempt it, so I figured I would share it here as well. For more details and a solution visit my blog here: https://quadratablog.blogspot.com/2020/10/2020...

Re: Quadrata: A Free Puzzle Blog

Here's a 9x9 Sudoku where the clues tell you what the sum is of the two adjacent cells. The catch is that the numbers are only given when they are even. Thus a numberless dot reveals that the sum is odd without telling you what that sum is. https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-UBG-tGsv9YU/X1bhOB088aI/AAAAAAAA...
