    That was a particularly elegant design, not just from the point of view of the “count up” theme, but also because the design made it a lot of fun to solve. There’s a feeling as though you are carefully setting up a row of dominos as you mark lots of little pairs and figure out components to fit together. Then you start being able to completely place numbers and the dominos all start to fall. Without needing any bifurcation or luck.

      Glad you enjoyed it, from my point of view it was quite fun getting all the combinations to work nicely as well. I’ll have to do a few more of these when I get a spare moment!

    Indeed, this is a most excellent puzzle. The way everything fits together is simply beautiful.

    Very cute Tom, thank you. I can imagine you were trying to swap the 9 and 10, but the solve was so enjoyable that it doesn’t matter. 🙂
