From my kids accomplishments, to my heretical perspective of the world

Here’s an interesting set of puzzles. They come with no instructions; you have to figure out what to do, and how to do it. It’s a little like playing “Myst”. Experiment!

The set of puzzles is called “ClickDragType”. There’s a clue right there.

Find it here. Click on the link “Play This Game”.

Note that it didn’t work correctly on my Firefox. The intro played, but the games never loaded. You may have to use (choke!) IE to run it.

    This one is pretty cool too. It’s kind of like those puzzles where you have to connect each pair of dots with a line, without crossing any other lines.

    Ok! That was interesting! I was able to complete 1-5 and 9 but can’t figure out the rest of them. Thanks for sharing!

    Much easier. I’m embarrassed to admint I didn’t get anywhere with the first set (well, I solved 1), but these I breezed through. I did 15 in about 6 minutes and have to quit and go to bed now.

    Donna, They start getting a lot harder around 16 or so…

    Alright, I just tried the other one and got to level 14.

    I see what you mean. This is my type of puzzle. I do this for a living. It’s just routing metals from device to device without shorting anything out.

    Donna, That’s just what I was thinking — this is just like designing a mask for a computer chip, so you should know how to do that.

    Number 16 slowed me down for a while, but then I went through the next 5 pretty easily. They are addictive!

    There are 30 all together. I’ve gone through the whole set 3 times. It’s not much easier doing it again; there are enough that I can’t remember how to solve each one the next time I see it.

    They don’t get harder as you go. I think 16, 23 and 29 were the hardest for me, but I don’t remember for sure. Some of them, even those in the 20’s, seem almost trivial to solve.
