Snakes's puzzles 11 Years ago Karma: 7  
I was explaining to my wife that we
don't necessarily run out of user
puzzles to play. She was wondering if
there was an end in sight for completing
user puzzles.

I told her about how "snake" seems
super-prolific in the creation of
puzzles so it doesn't seem like the
end is in sight.

She was thinking about trying to set
up Snake with a girlfriend or wife

Hehe, Adam your wife might join the PQ2 players community, otherwise she will take you appart from us. Don't you see? She want the users puzzles to run out, RUN OUT!!(joking ).

Yes, what you said is, I would say, the best point of the game: it's endless. We just need the cooperation and the will of some players who like creating puzzles and sharing them to continue "the adventure" and prolong entertainment. It's funny FOR users and BY users.

And you're right, that Snake don't get rid of creating and creating... and his puzzles are not obvious at a first sight (at least for me).

I think the _real_ endless part comes from the 5000 number! (the fixed amount of user puzzles: 50 pages of 100 puzzles each - whenever one is submitted, another is replaced)

I remember back in the day my old Daniel profile had my whole history of puzzles (only lacking the ones who would expire) and totaled like under 20 pages or something, so lots of puzzles left to try.

(incidentally, there's a recent "Daniel" guy making puzzles. That's not me - I haven't seen a flag associated with him in a test or user record so no clue as to where he's even from, but I remember a "Daniel" puzzle creator from Canada)

In my recent incarnation I have 6 pages worth of puzzles (surely less than half of them are pink/played).
Ballpark figure, I might have played 2000 user puzzles in my whole PQ2 lifetime. That's still less than half of the user puzzles' universe!
How about you guys, how many have you played? And how many pages have you got? Do you erase puzzles? (maybe to lower the weight on the loading/storing)

I know the new Daniel. Well, I mean, I've seen him in the weekly test (I guess it's him). He's chinese.

Currently I have 9 pages of puzzles, all completed (except for some given up puzzles). The last time I cleared my list was in February or so, since then I don't feel like cleaning again the pages, but eventualy I will.

I think maybe I've played around 2000 puzzles also in my whole PQ2 lifetime, although I think I've played less than you Dani, as you were quite a lot more concerned about users puzzles than me when I registered in this site (now long-long time ago)

Adri,

Now that's an idea. I'll have to
see if I can draw her in somehow.

That's how Zach and our son, Zeke,
got into it: by trying to create puzzles
that they thought I could never beat.

Of course, a lot of times, they were
right! To this day, Zeke (who's 8) gets
quite a few giggles when he creates a
puzzle that Zach cannot solve.

Re:Snakes's puzzles 11 Years ago Karma: 7  
Daniel,

I have about 8 pages of user puzzles
with the 8th page being not full.

We may fill up to about 10 to 15 pages
fairly soon, though, because my old
psp-1000 just basically died (in terms
of playing psp games, not the Internet or
other features) so we'll be using the
one 3000 model for the whole family now.

I find that Snake's puzzles are often a
significant challenge and he seems to
have such an abundant capacity for creation.

It's really a blessing to have someone
like him aboard.

Re:Snakes's puzzles 11 Years ago Karma: 7  
Well, finally decided to play "the game."

Time to quit talking about it and start
doing something about it.

A recent spate of interesting puzzles
from Snake got me thinking. Some are so
tempting to want to "slim down." So I tried
reposting one of his puzzles minus three
solid blocks.

It involves a somewhat novel way of
approaching the problem but I feel most
of you will catch on rather rapidly.

I'm going to have to cry and pout if
either Dani or Adri can surpass the
200% on both puzzles

Maybe give it a few days before demolishing
my record.

It's only fair to give Snake a bit to
see if he wants to play. Not sure whether
he likes playing as well as creating.
