New Puzzles?
 
Hello,
Today I have met two new 5X5 puzzles that I didn't solve earlier. They contain a new clue type; "X has Z dollars less than Y." Anyone also have been seeing these?

They Should keep adding new puzzles so no one can CHEAT and other people could earn rewards based on skills and not based copying all the patterns. How can you sit there playing thousands of games and just clicking the right answers rather than doing the puzzle? Don't you get bored? What's the point? Maybe you just don't have the skills to solve a puzzle!

Yes, I got three new puzzles in succession so far tonight.

I noticed that the point calculation is different. I just set a new record of 431 seconds and scored 501 points. I just scored 549 points on a 5x5 puzzle that I solved in 288 seconds. Definitely a different point system...

Come on everyone. You must have an opinion about the new puzzles. Love them? Hate them? Tell it right here.

haven't seen the new puzzles, but have a comment on the "old" ones. I wonder who invents them, but surely this person has some health problems or doesn't understand the basics of "positive" thinking. Instead of puzzles having to do with Captopril, and claustrophobism and hospital bills, why not use pleasurable situations, such as music, parties, fun.... and not illnesses!!!!!!!!! (yes, I know there are some puzzles with lambadas and macarenas, but apart from this... that's completely out of fashion now! :-))) Just thinking aloud

I am left with mixed feelings after playing several hundred of the new ones. The new clue type "Y paid Z dollars more than X" was confusing in the beginning and I was losing more than necessary time with them before developing a formula to map them on the board.
A second thing; I think the frequency of the new puzzles differentiate from user to user. In other words, a user may have more new ones than another user in the short-run. It's my experience so far.
In short, new puzzles are a welcome addition to the site.

Hate them...
 
I like that there are new puzzles, but I've found several that are not well constrained and have multiple solutions. It's redic when you have to guess to get the right solution. Anybody else have this problem?

I'm really not enjoying the new puzzles. The old ones were sometimes easy, sometimes challenging, but I could actually do most of them, given enough time. There are lots of the new ones I can't solve. I wish I could opt for new or old puzzles. I feel I can't really compete with the new ones. :(
