Puzzle 49 / Triple Back

I’m not really satisfied with the execution, but eh, what the hell. My brain can only function at so much of its full capacity when it’s a few kilometers up in the sky.

This is a Triple Back, variant on MellowMelon’s Double Back. Briefly, draw a closed loop through all square centers visiting each bold-outlined area exactly three (= ⌊π⌋) times. Shaded cells do not influence solving, only aesthetics.

Thanks for being an awesome place to live. ❤

(Yes, I know I’ve been posting way too many puzzles and way too few text posts recently. Expect that to change soon.)

Puzzle 48 / Double Back

At least one person wants me to post. I’m not even going to try do a life summary. It’s too hard. Let’s just say:

  1. right now, my blog drafts contain a backlog of ~7500 words and counting;
  2. I was not accepted as an MIT Admissions blogger, which is bad because my blogging will continue to not reach a large audience, but good because my blogging will continue to not reach a large audience. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that, because the application form wouldn’t let me submit without any media, I panickedly cranked out the following puzzle in an hour or so to attach.

This is a MellowMelon’s Double Back. Briefly, draw a closed loop through all square centers visiting each bold-outlined area twice. Shaded cells do not influence solving, only aesthetics.

Puzzle 35 / Double Back

This is another MellowMelon’s Double Back. Briefly, draw a closed loop through all square centers visiting each bold-outlined area twice. Shaded cells do not influence solving, only aesthetics.

It’s mostly easy, I think. It’s okay if you don’t know what the theme means. (Yes, chao, I want more contrib points.) Also, WordPress seems to have stopped automatically linking images to their files. Hmm.

Puzzle 26 / Double Back

That’s not a picture. Why is it recreated as one? Oh well.

You can interpret this as me about reaching level 8.1 (the user ranking) on rankk or complaining about how infuriating level 8.1 (the puzzle) is. I’m torn.

This is one of a bunch of MellowMelon’s Double Backs. Briefly, draw a closed loop through all square centers visiting each bold-outlined area twice. Shaded cells do not influence solving, only aesthetics.

Puzzle 25 / Double Back

Most uncreative picture ever! But it’s suitable after CiSRA’s Puzzle Week. This might be the first time our AoPS team managed all four puzzles in a group.

…sigh, now I must handle the guilt for squeezing out so much time from my normal schedule.

Puzzle 24 / Double Back

Right, back to puzzles because I have nothing substantial to say. Circumstantial evidence suggests I created this one in June.

EDIT 2012/10/12 UTC+8 7:30 PM: Fixed (or should I say rewrote) the top right quadrant and bottom middle. I hope.
