Akil Oyunlari puzzle magazines in English

Post by gulce » Wed 23 Feb, 2011 4:32 pm

Dear puzzle friends,

I am writing on behalf of Akil Oyunlari Publishing, the Turkish representative of World Puzzle Federation.

We have been publishing puzzle magazines in Turkey since 2003. Our magazines are published in Turkish language, but as the puzzles are mostly free from language, we wanted to make the magazines available to puzzlers all over the world. So we decided to open Akil Oyunlari Blog in English.

http://akil-oyunlari.livejournal.com

The blog will contain indexes for every issue. When you click on a particular puzzle name, you will be directed to the related PuzzleWiki page, which contains the example and English instructions of that puzzle.

Subscription options are explained in the Introduction post.

You can also follow Akil Oyunlari Magazines in Facebook page, which will be updated simultaneously with the blog:

http://www.facebook.com/akiloyunlari.magazines

Best wishes

Gulce Ozkutuk Yurekli

I sent off for a copy of issue 74 of this magazine a couple of weeks ago just to have a look at what it was like due to the lack of decent puzzle magazines over here (Gareth's Sudoku Xtra excepted of course!) and it arrived in the post today. I've only done a couple of the puzzles so far but am sure I'm going to really enjoy having a go at the wide variety of puzzles in there - some of which I have seen before and some which are quite new to me. What is also pleasing is the fact that the puzzles are graded, easy, medium, medium plus, hard and very hard so at least you know what to expect before you start. Great selection of puzzles.

Loving the write-up on Gareth!
Also interesting to note that the German puzzle wiki is being used for the English description/example repository of Turkish puzzles. Truly international...
I don't see a link for purchasing this issue. Can you post it here (or in your first post) please?
