Post 121 Advanced Puzzles Volume 1
I recently acquired this book. This evening, I solved two of the puzzles in chapter 9, but when I went to enter the solutions online, I found there was no code shown in the book. I then went through the rest of the book and there are no codes shown for any of the puzzles in chapters 10, 11 or 16, while there are codes shown in the warm up chapter.

Is this correct, or do I have a book that is missing some codes that should be there? If there are missing codes, what are they? I tried B4N1, but got a message saying there's no such puzzle.

Out of interest, I submitted a solution to the first of the warm up puzzles (B4W1) and was awarded 12 points.

OK, I just read the introduction and I see that there are 20 new puzzles that are not worth points. My fault for not checking.

Yes, the 20 puzzles were added to bring volume I "in line" with the other two.

But I couldn't really make them puzzles for points, I didn't want people who
own an earlier edition feel obliged to get a new book just for 20 puzzles..

Maybe you could email a pdf of the new puzzles or something to people who have the book, so they are available for points and so only people who have the book can get the points?

You're asking me to retroactively assign points to these puzzles... [blink]
