Sorry for the long break. It was very much needed for me though. To make it up, here’s a new type for you to chew on.

Sorry if some of you are getting sick of me posting Fillominos, but in my defense I think all of the ones I’ve posted recently are better than average. Another IPC puzzle that went into the first round of the contest, which appeared to me to be basically a sprint round. This was evidently the hardest of that set.

If you’re having trouble figuring out the point of the aesthetics, a hint to get you started is that I is the 9th letter of the alphabet.

I constructed five puzzles for the 2011 Indian Puzzle Championship that ran the Sunday before last on June 12. All of them but one ended up coming out well enough that I’d like to post them on here too. The last one was a Numberlink / ABC Connect that was too easy and simple to go on here, although it was evidently appropriate for the contest.

Since Creek doesn’t appear much in competitions if ever, this one was included in a round of innovative types, where each type had an easy puzzle and a slightly harder puzzle. This puzzle here is the easy one and was made to be solved by someone new to the type.

The much easier companion to last week’s Path puzzle. Again, gray squares mean the same thing as yellow ones. The S doesn’t have any special meaning; it just made for a good puzzle.

Another LMI test over, another batch of sadly neglected puzzles that want at least a bit of exposure. Before you start groaning at the thought of another reject series that will last for months and make you totally sick of Fillomino, this one will be just two weeks. This one is an easy classic that would have opened the test if it were used.
