I love logic puzzles!!! They're my favorite type. I loved doing the Letters Home the most. The gelato one was the trickiest since it wasn't easy dividing up the gelatos on the grid

Much to my surprise I enjoyed the puzzles. It's a surprise because I used to not be very good at solving them. Or maybe I wasn't interested enough to focus on them to solve them?

I liked all the puzzles. The one exception was the one which I managed to get turned in about 1/2 hour before the deadline! (I like puzzles which aren't ambiguous in interpretation and if I read it one way, it meant 'this' and if I read it another way it meant 'that'. That one was Puzzle 3 - Herbology.)

A favorite was the one with the House Elves (#11). It just sort of solved itself as I was writing it out. ^_^

I don't usually like puzzles very much, but once I got comfortable working with these, they actually became fun.

I really didn't like that Herbology one for the same reason Tarma gives, except I never caught on to the double meaning and missed the puzzle's solution entirely.

I don't remember having a favorite puzzle.

Which puzzle was your favorite?
Logic puzzles are my favorite so I (almost) loved them all!

Which puzzle was most frustrating?
Like Tarma and February, Herbology! In fact, my confusion stayed with me so I couldn't do the next two puzzles until after the deadlines passed.

How awesome are logic puzzles?!
Totally awesome! RRToL-1.0 was run in 2013 and it was one of the reasons I joined HOL. If I was faster at solving them, I'd seriously consider seeking.

A "Cassie Sig" is priceless - thank you so much!
