Puzzle Section



This totally-not-ripped-off puzzle design requires totally-not-ripped-off explanatory text. It is a logic-based combinatorial character-placement puzzle. The objective is to fill a 9×9 grid with characters so that each column, each row, and each of the nine 3×3 sub-grids that compose the grid (also called "boxes", "blocks", "regions", or "sub-squares") contains each unique character displayed in the puzzle.

Oh, I see!

What a coincidence.

Thanks, really, but when I get bored I just wander the intert00bz leaving randumb comments on other people blogs.

The existence of a comment page is quite enough for me - I really don't need puzzles and games...

The real failure here is the English language, which does not have enough filthy two and three letter words for this kind of thing.

I'm not fond of shopping, either.

Would you like to buy a Letter A?

Well, my smutty friend, I do gotta say that little fellah certainly looks determined, doesn't he.

Determined to pass a righteous turd, at the very least.

I'm thinking there might be simpler explanations for the shit that might have happened.

Mark, Luke, Matthew and John.

How 'bout the gospel according to Occam?

You were all HIGH!!

John Allegro (not to be confused with the poet Andante).

So let me get this straight: nobody's done the puzzle yet?

Smut Clyde said...

Is there a prize?

Substance McGravitas said...

Um, uh...

MCK AFX S!U

Oh damn.

Smut Clyde said...

Just a wild guess.

mikey said...

God dammit.

My monkey got frustrated trying to understand the rules and shat on the damn thing.

My monkey sucks balls. I tried to explain the rules to him, but they were kind of complicated and self-referential, and I gave up and shat on it too

I thought you put a chicken on the grid and bet on where it would shit. I kept waiting for the chicken.

For some reason I'm getting the NFL network broadcast of the Cleveland/Pittsburgh football game on my tv tonight. Which is cool.

But one of their announcers keeps calling the players 'suckers'. "Tough" suckers. "Big" suckers. Suckers.

It keeps reminding me of the MST3K episode where they kept calling people "Turkey"...

Brag brag brag.

I should have known that, the graph makes more sense than an ABX derivatives table.
