#73: Aqre; Cell Blocks Sudoku; Vowelless Anagrammy
Hello, and welcome to Puzzles for Progress! Today, we have an Aqre (another Eric Fox puzzle type) that should be a good introduction to the genre. Also, a 6x6 hybrid between Cell Blocks (Shikaku) and Sudoku. Finally, a Vowelless Anagrammy, which I originally made because, after last week's Anagrammy, I was like "imagine if there was a crossword that was a vowelless and an anagrammy! That'd be impossible to solve! Mwahahahahahahahahahaha" but then testers, like, solved it? So I decided to make it a Puzzles for Progress puzzle. It's only a 5x5, though, because I do want to minimize how evil the puzzle is. Today's puzzles all have something in common: most of the difficulty is in the rules themselves; when you get used to the rules, you should find the solving experience to be fairly smooth.
I should also quickly mention that, last Saturday, rangsk streamed my recemt Ambiguous Kropki Pairs Sudoku from Issue #70. Do check out the video if you enjoy that kind of thing!
