#46: Word Ladder: Across Asia; Enclosures; Star Battle
Updated: Jun 3, 2021
Hello, and welcome to Puzzles for Progress!
I feel like I've entered into this weird "hype creep" with my puzzles, where every week I've been saying something like "I really like these puzzles!" and now saying that means nothing. I'll break the trend this week by presenting three puzzles of average caliber! I like to think my average is pretty good, though, so you should definitely still do them. Today, a Word Ladder spanning the Himalayas. Also, an easyish Enclosures, and an introductory Star Battle. (I have a harder one in the pipeline.) Anyway, print the puzzles out using the following links:

Just the Enclosures puzzle: tinyurl.com/pfp-46-enclosures
Just the Star Battle puzzle: tinyurl.com/pfp-46-starbattle
Alternatively, here they are all on one page: tinyurl.com/puzzlesforprogress-46
The Word Ladder is available "online" in a Google Doc optimized for copy-pasting into a notes app or wherever; the Enclosures is in Penpa; and Star Battle in puzz.link. Star Battle is that one puzzle that's actually nice in Penpa sometimes, since coloring can come in handy, but this puzzle is easy enough that you shouldn't really need to do that.
