#105: KenKen, Yajilin, Overpath
Hello, and welcome to Puzzles for Progress! I've been busy lately, so I sure am happy I did 9 Hours, 9 Puzzles (detailed in my last post) to get a backlog. Hopefully I make some puzzles in the next two weeks, though, or my backlog will fully erode. We'll see.
Anyway, I made today's puzzles in hours 4 through 6 of February 25!
Here's Puzzles fordle Progress, the custom wordle around these parts: solve
So. The fourth hour. This was my worst hour of the nine, mentally, because I was in a slightly bad mood at the time for non-puzzle reasons, and so I ended up switching from a more ambitious puzzle type to this KenKen. I even used rangsk's f-puzzles extension, which I'd never used for a non-sudoku puzzle in this context, to ensure that I finished in time. Despite the hectic backstory, I quite enjoyed this puzzle when I re-solved it to make the answer key! Proves something, I guess.
We now quickly teleport to the sixth hour, where I opted for a Yajilin. At first, I thought that this would be too easy, since I somehow made about 75% of this puzzle in like 10 minutes. However, the ending proved trickier, but after 30 more minutes I got something that worked. Should be fairly approachable by Yajilin standards!
Back to the fifth hour. I wrote both code and clues to create this Overpath. Psychologically, this made me feel much better, and took me halfway to completing 9 puzzles in the 9 hours!
