Default It would be useful to have puzzles numbered

Why has each puzzle not got a number? It would be useful to refer to it among ourselves.

Default Numbers

I believe that each puzzle is nearly or always randomly generated by the software. Therefore, a number would not be easily available. I also believe the puzzles that are generated can have the same clues in a different order as another puzzle. So, even though the puzzles are equivalent one to the other, they would have different numbers. Hope this helps.

Thank you Pcuser. Can you gaive me any idea on completing a very difficult puzzle I tried last night? It was solved I think 35% and there was no positive clues only negative ones. Like brian doesn't eat chocolate, that kind. Anyway I managed to work out only two matches and not very many mismatches. I puzzled my brain for 4hours and absolutely made no further progress. How can these ones be done?

Stan

The one I posted above this one was a different one, but nevertheless difficult. I am aged 65 and just started. I am at the moment twice as slow or slower than the average times. I have a lot to learn here. The puzzle I listed about the dogs names and cookies I have only one match the one that was given ie Jaylin makes gingerbread cookies.

Actually stanstar, you have more information than you think.

2. The five individuals are the baker who made peanut butter cookies, the person who named their dog Endymion, the baker who made chocolate chip cookies, Braydon and the person who arrived on Monday.

6. The five individuals are the person who named their dog Eurydice, Braydon, the person who arrived on Monday, the baker who made gingerbread cookies and the baker who made peanut butter cookies.

Braydon is listed in both of these 5 individual clues so he could not have any of the cookies, dogs, or days listed in these 2 clues. Monday is also listed in both so the same goes for it, none of the clue listed in the 5 individual clues apply and you should have a lot of Xs for them. Peanut butter cookies is the same case. Then they tell you Janiyah made gingerbread cookies and seeing that it is listed in the 5 individual clues you can have many Xs from that too.

I don't know how to explain better, but I did finish the puzzle under the average time. I think more time and experience will help you to do better on these under 50% solved puzzles. Happy Puzzling!
