New Addiction

One of the other nerds... err... science teachers turned me on to these puzzles on Friday. Bridges. Otherwise known as Hashiwokakero. And my mom can't pronounce Sudoku!

Mary, if you try these, you will be addicted. I promise.

I may not have given it a sufficient time interval, but I thought this thing was crap on a stick. I didn't know what was happening and I felt my unusually high IQ marks were flowing downhill as a result. WTF?

The rules are never well explained. But it really is simple and challenging! The number on each circle is the number of lines that can come out of it. Lines can come out orthogonally only (up, down, left, right) and no more than 2 can connect between circles. Once you get the hang, it's fun!
if you're weird like me.

Betsy, check out the other puzzles at Conceptispuzzles.com (where this is called "hashi", I think). I really dig the pic-a-pix puzzles there, but they also have some cool linking and filling puzzles too.
