Some Thoughts The fourth way to solve puzzles | Comment 9 of 16 |
For most puzzles, in addition to sudden intuition, internet searches and software programs, there is a fourth and much more gratifying method of solution: work it out by methodical logic. I can honestly say that that was how I solved "Word Ladder Construction", "Mix and Match" "Sequence Fill In", "A Timely Manner", "Conversing Club" and "Shakespeare's Numbers". On another website, I wrote a movie review that solved the riddles of the enigmatic 2003 film "Swimming Pool" - I am particularly happy about that feat, since not a few professional movie reviewers were stumped by it.
