    It was great to get to know TomTom puzzles last week. A type I have stayed away from previously because of their mathy nature. Now that I’ve tried them out a bit I must say they’re quite fun to play around with!

    I very much look forward to this week of Tapa based puzzles, that are more of the binary type that I usually enjoy.

    Thank you!
