Melon’s Puzzle Zoo has ended

February 28, 2011

Around the time of this posting, LMI is no longer accepting score submissions for the contest. Below is a link to the puzzle booklet, the same as the one on LMI without the password. There is also a PDF that has all of the puzzles on the test together with their solutions (don’t open if you don’t want to see them yet!), as well as some brief comments from myself about the puzzles. Mostly I pointed out the tricky innovative logic the puzzle had, if any — and for the adults there almost always was some.

Apparently I am ranked 75th among all google results for “melons”. Thank you WordPress statistics page for cluing me in about that. And if you search for “descriptive melon”, I’m 46th because I used the word ‘descriptive’ on the rules page for Slalom. (But I’m 2nd or so if you search for “mellowmelon” without a space.)
