Who Won the Race? (Easy)
We can sometimes use logic to stretch a little information a long way. Can these small clues tell us everything we need to know about who won this competition?
Make It Traceable (Medium)
In a tracing puzzle, you can’t lift your writing tool or go over a segment more than once. Can you trace this entire figure without removing segments?
How Much Can They See? (Medium)
Art needs protecting and so art galleries need guards. How many does this one need?
