Hi Bob,

We use the online solving data to define "advanced". For us, puzzles that need more than 1 hour to solve via the website are advanced. We never really checked it, but we believed that if it takes 1 hour to solve on the web, with all the benefits the system provides us (like the green/red semaphores), it would take at least the double time to solve with a pencil on paper. Are we mistaken? Do we use a wrong gauge to define advanced? I don't know. Maybe we are, but until we have another gauge to set a different definition, that's what we use.

Now, let's see what puzzles aren't advanced, according to you, in iGridd Book, Black and White, Advanced, Vol 8:

Not advanced, should not be in the book: 1-5, 8-10, 13, 14, 18, 20-22, 24, 29-31, 34-38.
So-so: 6,7, 11, 12, 15-17, 19, 26.
Good: 20, 27, 28, 32, 33, 39, 40.

And now - let’s check them:
  • #1 is "Like Snow" by Andreasss. The online ID is 27735. The mid-time in griddlers.net is 2:07 (2 hours and 7 minutes). According to our definitions it is an advanced puzzle.
  • #2 is "Protection Totem: Snake" by elimaor. The online ID is 22365. Mid-time is 1:51 (1 hour and 51 minutes). Another advanced according to us.
  • #3 is Alf by wenca. ID is 27465. Mid-time is 1:28. Advanced, according to us.
  • #4 is Smurf by twoznia. ID is 275114. Mid-time is 1:06. Advanced, according to us.
  • #5 is Monograms: R by JohnWillems. ID is 18549. Mid-time is 1:20.
I can continue checking the rest, but I already know that the mid-time records will be more than an hour.

If you want to come up with a new way to calculate/define Advanced - please do. Like always, we are attentive and may find your idea worth doing.

Thanks,
Hagit
