Puzzle 150: Kompass

German qualifiers this weekend (English instruction booklet), with puzzles authored by Martin Merker and myself. Here’s a Kompass puzzle that didn’t make the cut because of an ambiguity that turned out to be not too hard to fix (I think!).

Puzzle 16: Compass

Just survived this year’s 24h puzzle championship in Budapest! Congrats to the winners (Peter Hudak in first, edging out Nikola Zivanovic and Zoltan Horvath), and to Nils for winning the fight for best German. I expect to post (or link to) my contribution at some point, but for now here’s a Compass puzzle that I skipped in favour of two more accessible ones. Inspired by Nikolai’s survey of almost symmetric puzzles.
