Wow - this puzzle is immensely popular ;-)

There seems to be a "timeloop problem" with this one.
Might explain, why your comment came through not once, but twice... ;-)

JoergWausW, if you refresh the page it will re-post the comment, so that's the usual explanation. Seems to be working okay for me! :)

I see what you mean about the play count: 562,983 as of me commenting here. I will reset it.

I've checked the logs, and this puzzle genuinely HAS been opened this many times. However, most of these were attempts to hack the site by injecting nonsense into the URL, on 20th February.

There have been 309 distinct, logged-in users play the puzzle at least once, but because it's a free one I can't be exactly sure how many people have played it without being logged in. However, looking at the logged plays without obvious spam content in the URL, I've adjusted the play count appropriately.

I think there are two other free puzzles with obviously inflated counts too (although nowhere near so much), so I will look at these. Thanks for pointing this out, Maartje!

Key

  • A yellow/light blue highlight in the time distribution charts highlights your time, where relevant.
  • Rating scores out of 10.0 show the average difficulty rating chosen by users, where 1.0 is "Easy" and 10.0 is "Hard".
  • If a puzzle is opened more than once, including by loading from a saved position, then this is potentially a significant aid so it is listed as being completed with 'multiple sessions' for the purpose of the best time/average rating displays above.
  • Minor aid is defined as no more than one use of 'Check solution' when incomplete and/or no more than one use of 'Check solution' when wrong; and/or using highlighting aids (show repeated digits, show broken inequalities and show valid/invalid placements [slitherlink] only). Major aid is any and all other use of the solving aids except for 'show wrong'.
