Sunday Update and Solutions

Our first week of 2022 is gathered together in this PDF and the solutions are in this PDF.

The daily solution videos are on the posts and linked below:

In 2022 we’re looking to have a few additional kinds of videos on our YouTube channel and we’re releasing our first “Art of Puzzlecrafting” video with Prasanna Seshadri talking about his thoughts in constructing the hard Saturday Fillomino puzzle. We’ll have several more of these through the year (with the next one from me in a couple weeks).

In a few minutes we will also release our first Sunday Stumper of the year.

The next week of puzzles will feature Sudoku and variations, and we’ll have some other news posting as well.

Schedule for Next Week

We hope you enjoyed seeing some of our Best Puzzles of 2021 collected together last week.

This coming week we’ll be starting off with a Welcome to 2022 variety puzzle mix week with six different genres from Monday to Saturday. We’re also working on a few more site updates and completing our 2022 book plans and will share the info here when ready.

Wrapping up 2021 and prepping for 2022

Happy New Year to our GMPuzzles fans!

For those that missed it, we just released Grandmaster Puzzles Quarterly: Volume 2, a collection of ninety-six puzzles across six genres: Isodoku, Kakuro, Statue Park, LITS, Cave, and Slitherlink.

This next week will again be “off” from regular puzzle posts. But we still plan to post some different kinds of content and updates. We intend to share our Best of 2021 puzzles, make some updates to Penpa-Edit, grade our 2021 Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) and share our 2022 OKRs and book plans.

Our past week of Sudoku puzzles is collected in this PDF and the solutions are in this PDF.

We’ve recently added Penpa solving modes for all of our Pentominous and Fillomino puzzles dating back to 2013. Throughout the year we’ve gotten 1350 puzzles digitized (completed genres listed here) and had over 200,000 clicks into our Penpa puzzles. We’re hoping to keep growing that number into 2022 (500k+) and expect to have everything digitized in the next few months. There are some other recent Penpa improvements we’ll be rolling out in the next week and telling you more about. We’ll also be spending some time looking back at our Puzzle Grand Prix puzzles from Serkan and me, and then announcing our Best of 2021 web puzzles, reflecting on our 2021 objectives and key results and sharing our 2022 plan.
