Puzzle 39: Hiking Path / Geradeweg

Here’s a twin Geradeweg and Wanderweg puzzle. Both puzzles were on last week’s WPC in London, under the names “Straight Loop” and “Hiking Path”. I sort of hope Geradeweg sticks as a name.

Puzzle 38: Split Pentominos

An update, finally. I’ve been busy starting a new job. This is a split pentomino placement puzzle, as seen in this year’s puzzle GP, a candidate puzzle for the GP finals which were held today during the WPC in London.

Rules Place a full set of pentominos across both grids, such that they don’t touch, not even diagonally. Clues count the number of cells that are part of pentominos in the corresponding row or column.
