The puzzle seems simple enough. It is only a few squares and you only have four knights (the knights move in an āLā shape, like in regular chess). The goal is also straightforward: swap the positions of the black and white knights. Clarification 1: Every time a knight moves, it must move into a...

I've been attempting to construct a miracle sudoku puzzle for a while now, with a little twist. Instead of one sudoku grid, there are two combined grids, as a new-ish idea. The grid I've been using to construct is shown below: The green represents that the box is common with both sudoku's. Howe...

@Stevo just in case, you might want to clarify in the post what the miracle sudoku rules are

@Sphinx This question makes me wish I went through with my plan to make a highly customisable sudoku setter/checker/solver. But since for my purposes f-puzzles.com is more than enough I never did :/
@LukasRotter would have made my life a lot easier than 51 failed attempts before finally asking for help
@LukasRotter f-puzzles.com... If I did research would have made my life also a lot easier

@oAlt J (joule, amount of energy) ITER* limiting UP (where yuri gagarin went on his trip)= JUPITER (planet)

Lol
Don't let the corn god hear that ...
@Jafe I'm assuming this is belle (attractive woman) R (real) hon (sweetheart, honey) stealing o (old) p(riceless), for Bellerophon, which I assume is a planet Malcolm Reynolds and his wife went to although I haven't found such a reference in wikis yet
that is correct

CCCC: Are even stranger laws primarily being transmitted via Congress? (8)
@Jafe That's VENEREAL, as in diseases transmitted via sexual congress.
that is correct but could you just spell out the wordplay for the archivist
Oh, of course: It's (ARE EVEN)* + L(aws) = VENEREAL
Nice follow-up to Venus, by the way.
hehe thanks

(What are venereal pleasures without proper wordplay, after all.)
not worth it, imo
i wonder if there's a personality adjective for every planet... i know mercurial is a thing
i expect there would be, considering there have been people taking astrology seriously for centuries
Was just about to clue it. Scrap that, then.
oh sorry
Naw. It's for the better, believe me.
There are chemical elements related to nearly all planets.
And I think the "unsteady" meaning of mercurial relates more to quicksilver than to the god after which the planet is named.

What object connects them? The answer is a 6-letter word.

2:36 PM
@Jafe (I remember one of Stiv's series where the answer and the planet shared the same first three letters)
apparently "jovial" comes from a name for jupiter, and it has the antonym "saturnine"

This is a question of my own devising. You have a double pan scale which will tell you whether 2 coins or 2 groups of coins weigh the same or whether one side is heavier than the other side. You have N coins with one coin being heavier or lighter (you don't know which) than the other coins. You...

This puzzle builds around some similar ideas as in my last one, but here I was able to flesh out the story in the critical sequence a bit more. Can you tell whose turn it is in this position?
