My current bonus puzzle is identical to the one I just solved. It's an 8x8 no-op with the same pattern as the patterned 8x8, addition only puzzle you posted to the forum and I'd rather have a new puzzle than solve it again.

Sounds clearly like a bug, sorry, will fix.. [huh]

I found the cause now: 6 identical puzzles in the bonus puzzle pool [blush]

I've assigned a new one.

Still have to check if there are more doubles, and if maybe something went wrong
when adding the new set of 8x8 patterned puzzles..


Edit: also, those new patterned puzzles were accidentally marked as noop puzzles, fixed now.

Edit 2: duplicates removed.

Thanks Patrick.

If I hadn't seen the forum post and noticed that the sum of the values for all the cages was 288 and made the guess that all the operators were + that would have been a much harder puzzle.

Curiously, my yesterday's bonus puzzle was one of these 8x8's, presented as a noop, and I solved it as a noop, without major problems, I mean the addition was finally required for the cages involved after some simple analysis, so I think that, in fact, adding the operators is not making easy the puzzle, in some way it's irrelevant, the real difficulty comes from the inner ring with 12 cells as in the sample you proposed.
