Crouch's puzzles
« on: January 18, 2007, 11:10:20 AM »

Since I only just started with Rubicon I thought it would be interesting to create a puzzle myself every once in a while. Then hopefully you can see the quality of the puzzles gradually increasing.
So have fun with them and feel free to post any nice solution you come up with. I'll add the best (or most creative) solution to this first post.

Mystery box:          tecameg     solution: julymok (by Rene)     Easy
2 Mystery boxes:   kylykag                                                                       Medium

Oops, guilty as charged. I moved to the sandbox to test, and then played around with the ramps for style. Here is the legal solution: bopubih.

Edit: That is a cool solution, Rene.

mystery box - tecameg:zycigil

Rene's dopipix takes the prize, even though it fails on case 0 (in this case, an easily fixed timing issue).

Wow, huge reply! I'm glad you all liked it.
jf (the legal one) and jnz solved it the way I did myself. 20eight and SM also have a nice approach at the right side of the row.
But I think the most original one is from Rene. Unfortunately it doesn't work for 0, but simply deleting two pieces of the downward pipe fixes that.
Anyway, great solutions and I'll come up with a slightly more difficult puzzle within a few days.

Oops! That is what you get from cleaning up after testing the solution.... Here is a version that is fixed (in the way Crouch suggests): julymok

As I am supposed to be the glass floor specialist  Grin, I decided to use the glass floor also in this solution...... or may be I just did not immediately see an easy way to handle the 0 in the alternative solutions  Wink.

Mystery box now has a sequel: "2 Mystery boxes" - kylykag
It's a slightly more difficult puzzle, so I'm rating it as medium. Even though some of you will probably solve it in 10 or 20 minutes (it took me considerably longer to create the solution though Wink ).

My solution to 2 Mystery Boxes: tukexug

As you mention, for beginners it will probably feel like a medium solution.

For 2 Mystery boxes (kylykag): zyhulev
If somebody doesn't know a bit about modular arithmetic they might find one very hard.  It reminded me of CUDUZUC in that respect.
