Wow, these are really hard. I'm new to this...I just finished Bimbogami which was my first attempt at one of these, but I've been clueless on a few Labyrinth II puzzles. Do I need more practice elsewhere or should I just be asking for more help? I feel like I'm asking too much.

I understand where you're coming from. Lab I was my first attempt at these kind of puzzles and if it wasn't for the countless nudges and kicks from a lot of friendly people I wouldn't have escaped. Don't be afraid or embarrassed to ask for hints. Smile

After Lab I, I went over to PuzzleToMe, where they have an excellent Back-to-Basics module (and some fun contests). You can do some practice puzzles or just read about puzzle methods. A lot of these keep coming back over and over, the more you puzzle the easier you recognise them.

Of course, there will always be plenty of puzzles where you have no clue what to do... Speechless

Thumbs Up

ps: I am now a puzzle junkie, and it's all SparkPlug's fault!

He has a lot to answer for... he got me started too. Thumbs Up

When all else fails, there's always PANIC to fall back on.

Thanks! I'm slowly working my way through Lab II. I think I'll try that Back To Basics someday when I'm inevitably stuck in the labyrinth.
