Last Chessman Standing: Invented by Vesa Timonen. Have the pieces capture each other until there is only one. No moves, only captures.

How to Play.
Click and drag a piece onto another to capture it. Pieces capture as in standard chess, but color can be ignored. When the button is held on a piece, the legal captures will turn black. You'll be notified if there are no more moves.

Pipe Spin: Spin the pipes such that all pipes become green.

Rules: One pipe has a "water source" (colored green), and anything connected to that pipe also gets water. To win, all pipes must be connected. On harder levels, pipes may "wrap around" (connections above reconnect to connections below, and same for left-to-right). To win, all pipes must get to the "water source".

How to Play: Click on a pipe to rotate it 90 degrees clockwise. After choosing a new puzzle, you may have to resize your browser window a bit to force the refresh.


The pipe images are not showing as of writing this entry. Wei-Hwa, images are not showing...

Due to the random puzzles, answers will be different based on your pipe layout. Example of a solved puzzle:

I will post the solutions later.

Mini Battleships: To solve these small Battleships puzzles, place the six-ship fleet into the grid.

Rules: Ships can be oriented vertically or horizontally. The numbers along the side tell you how many "ship parts" are in that respective row or column. Ships are never adjacent to each other, not even diagonally. Some ship components and blank spaces are given to you and cannot be changed.

How to Play: All 36 squares must be labeled before the puzzle is considered solved. Click on an empty space to mark it with ocean ('x'). Click on a brown ocean space to mark it with a ship part. Click on a brown ship part to make it empty. Click on "Reset" (in the lower-right) to reset the puzzle. The numbers will turn green or red depending on how many ship parts you've placed.

Cross-O Change-O: I started with one category name and five items in the category, and I wrote their names across six columns. Then I mixed each group of letters in each column, and I also rearranged the columns. See if you can rearrange everything back.

Based on Cross-O, a puzzle type invented by Will Shortz in the 1980s. Drag on the blue column headers to rearrange them.

Hints:
This puzzle is hard. You really have to play around with the words. I wrote down the possible combinations and after a while, you will start to see a pattern.
