Alright, now...tatofef. I call it 'Randomized Combination Lock'. I'm not sure it's solvable in the space available; the idea was that something different would be required for each possible number the random crate puts out.

Not solvable unless you give us another crate to work with. If the crate we get is even and an odd target crate is present it can't be solved.

Every time I come around and look at other people's puzzles, it occurs to me that I'm just not as good at thinking this way as most of the people on this forum are. But maybe this one could be a little fun, if it works:

My solution is fykurun. For a bit of added fun, I made the entire puzzle jam, with no moving parts left, after it was solved; this was about as difficult as the puzzle itself.

Most people on the forum have a very long experience with Rubicon. That's why we tend to make the puzzles very hard. But that does not mean that we don't enjoy fun puzzles as well. Like these ones.

For Tetris (garudox): jehoxud
For One Copier Office (rydizeg): fyhodev - this was pretty tough. In the end, I solved it slow and steady imagewith a template copier

My solution to the one copier thing (which is listed on the first post) was imagea weird hybrid of 3 template copiers and 2 things that used subtraction to make the 1s and 0s. It's only slightly faster than that.

"Say When" -- libyfop
This one is basically asking for the other half of a kind of machine I'm interested in, but don't quite understand how to build--where a number input is turned into a certain length of time. I've seen them used before, so this is probably pretty easy, but I'd like to get a better understanding of how to build one of those things...
