Puzzle 106 – Battleships [Shapes]

This is a Wednesday battleships puzzle, except with a different fleet. Instead of the usual fleet, place the 7 chiral tetrominoes. If you haven’t heard of this term, it means the 7 pieces you might find in a game of tetris, each consisting of 4 squares, that look approximately like the letters L,J,S,Z,O,I and T. You can rotate the pieces, but not reflect them.

As I said earlier this week, making the images is annoying with this laptop, so I’m just taking screenshots of the spreadsheets. This looked fine for the akaris, but not quite as good for the remaining puzzles. Hopefully the quality of this week’s puzzles makes up for it. 🙂


Puzzle 28 – Battleships [shapes]

This is a Wednesday battleship puzzle. The fleet are the five ships on the bottom, and they are allowed to reflect and/or rotate before placement in the grid.

It looks like the 1×4 Battleship is “LOST” at sea. 🙂

If you haven’t figured it out, or just want to check,  the theme is (rot13ed): chmmyrf jvgu grgebzvabrf

I think this is my first nonsquare grid, but it was either that or putting one ocean cell, which I like even less into the puzzle. Hope you enjoy 😀



Puzzle 2 – Battleship [EXTRA]

Here’s a really fun Friday tricky puzzle, to finish off the first week of puzzles. This one is a battleship puzzle, with 1 4-size, 2 3-size, 3 2-size, and 4 1-size ships, with a 5×5 subgrid in which you should put 1 3-size ship, 2 2-size ships and 3 1-size ships. If you haven’t been doing the extra grid puzzles, you might want to start with #1, #2, or #4 which is an easy Monday puzzle i have planned.

Until then, here are two last thoughts I realized to think about over the weekend:

“Unfinished” and “Never ending” seem to bee synonyms, but one means goes on too long, and the other means stops too short.

“Fast food” is an oxymoron. Think about it until it makes sense.
