Puzzle 16: Compass

Just survived this year’s 24h puzzle championship in Budapest! Congrats to the winners (Peter Hudak in first, edging out Nikola Zivanovic and Zoltan Horvath), and to Nils for winning the fight for best German. I expect to post (or link to) my contribution at some point, but for now here’s a Compass puzzle that I skipped in favour of two more accessible ones. Inspired by Nikolai’s survey of almost symmetric puzzles.

    Wow, that was a marvellous puzzle!
    I haven’t seen this type before, and I couldn’t work out a logical solution – I proceeded almost entirely on intuition from some point on. Yet the puzzle flowed very nicely and the symmetric pairs of clues worked in awesomely different ways. Thank you :)

    Ein fantastisches Rätsel. Es ging immer wieder logisch weiter ohne Ausprobieren. (Zumindest zu zweit mit Berni.) Ich bin aber ziemlich sicher, dass ich es während des Marathons nicht geschafft hätte, das Rätsel zu lösen. LG Silke

    Freut mich, dass es gefällt!

    It does seem to be a type that lends itself to intuitive solving, at least the puzzles that I’ve made.

    Dann sind wir ja quit – ich habe den letzten Geradeweg aus dem 24-h-Marathon inzwischen schon 3x widerlegt…
