    Default Coming soon! Puzzle in Pieces!

    This is how it is going to be: there will be 16 small puzzles. When you solve one you get a piece of a jigsaw. After solving all 16 you have all the pieces to build the jigsaw that contains the final puzzle.

    Right now I have the 16 small puzzles and the design for the final one. But I am going to wait until after Labor Day Weekend to start posting so I can double check everything.

    I will be releasing the puzzles on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at noon EST. The first person to solve each small puzzle will get 3 points, the second one two, and everybody else gets one point. The final puzzle has extra points (I am thinking about 6-4-2, but I still haven't decided that yet). I will update the scoreboard when I post every new puzzle.

    I haven't decided about the prizes yet, but I still have two weeks, right?

    Unhappy

    Due to work obligations, I won't be able to play until after September 15.

    Darn, missing another one, sigh.

    I can no longer get to 12 from work so I'd have to play after work, which means Molnar would have already have them all solved...

    But I might anyways just to keep the noodle moving!!

    By September 15th there should be only 5 puzzles out (11, plus the final one still left), so you should have time to catch up and still have chances to get lots of points if you are one of the first solvers of the rest of the puzzles.

    Noon is the only time I can be sure to be online on Monday, Wednesday and Friday and that seems more or less fair for East and West Coast of the US (it would be quite hard to coordinate Europe and Australia/NZ too, sorry!).

    Also you never know some puzzles may be hard enough and take more than some minutes before they are solved.

    LOL me too!

    I am trying to make them a little bit of everything. But I have learned that sometimes what I consider easy it is not so and what I think will take a long time is solved very fast. So we will have to see.

    It's not unknown for me to be up and about at 4 a.m., but I don't think it will be come a habit on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays - NZ is ahead of EST. The puzzles will still be the same no matter what time we see them

    Are you really using EST or are you on EDT?

    I am using noon ET. Which will be EDT (unless there is an unexpected delay and we move into November).

    Thanks for catching that sluggy!
