    Default NOVEMBER Novelties Discussion

    During November I'll post a few puzzles, "novelties", which I hope twelevers may enjoy. The puzzles are in a separate thread to make them easier to find. Creative solutions/comments are appreciated. PM your solutions to me.

    After recounting, Novelty 1 has been posted again with a better ending to match what had been intended.

    Thanks, gabi.

    The Puzzle Boat is practically solved. The puzzles there were certainly varied. The November Novelties should be less time-consuming than many of those.

    Default Smack!!!

    What was that sound? Oh, it was the November 7 puzzle beating you senseless.

    Wowza, is that a nice chunk of puzzle!

    poor Pianoman, I hope he wakes up from his smackdown.

    November 7 puzzle should look far less daunting in a 12 x 12 table. I had trouble with an attachment (too large), and with having even spacing (too wide) and with coping (lost all the formatting).

    The Puzzle Boat definitely had some influence on this puzzle.

    Am I the only one finding the first step in all these puzzles much easier than the second one?

    I have liked the first part of solving puzzle 7, now if I could make those 16 letters to say something to me... anyway, thanks knocka for the history lesson.

    Gabi has sent me the letters she has found so far in Puzzle 7 and I will check what I have done when I get the chance. Mea culpa.

    There is one error in Puzzle 7. The second letter you find is incorrect, but very close to what it should be. The context should let you work it out easily.
