Connection puzzle

Post by steVeRoll » Sat Jul 27, 2019 8:22 pm

A very simple puzzle game.
There is a board with circles on it, you can connect circles to their eight neighbors. To complete the puzzle, every circle must have as many connections as the number on it says. Connections cannot cross each other.

Interesting puzzle! Reminds me of several in Simon Tatham's collection (slant and bridges, most notably).

I played through a puzzle and when there were only 9 remaining dots, I had to resort to trial and error. I'm not sure if it was because I don't have enough experience with the game as to develop solving techniques. Does the game guarantee that the solution can be reached through reasoning, as most in the S.Tatham collection do, or only that the solution is unique?

I didn't actually invent this puzzle, in 7th grade it was given to us as a challenge in math class. I don't know who came up with this puzzle, but the papers we got were created with logic and reasoning behind them. With this I just came up with a way to generate a new puzzle every time, I didn't think about the uniqueness of each puzzle.
