Did a twin with the "0" plus 6 numbers (ie: 7x7), I think, (so many puzzles and different grids it's difficult for me to remember them all) a couple of days ago.
Patrick could either confirm or correct me.

Yes, the other new type of bonus puzzle is a 6x6 twin from zero (i.e. using 0-5)...

I'll track the bonus puzzles that were done in the meantime, and will change the 8 to 10 :-)

I just corrected the bonus puzzle points: 15 more people now have 10 instead of 8 points for
the new single 8x8 bonus puzzle, 7 more people now have 10 instead of 7 points for the new 6x6 twin
bonus puzzle.

Just received a 8x8 grid with the numbers of 0-7 with exponent component which kind of threw me......wasn't expecting it (a little difficult to deal with @ 1:15 in the AM!)

Although the bonus puzzles are certainly doable, some are definitely harder than the twin puzzles of the earlier days. I don't know if everyone is able to do a an 8x8 from zero puzzle so maybe those have to be eliminated if the point is to make them mostly doable for everyone. The 6x6 from zero twin puzzles are fine...

This is what it says on my home page:

(Current points) --> 36032
Bonus puzzle target --> 35984

No bonus puzzle is showing up for me. Did we run out of bonus puzzles again?

Most likely. You're my living alarm system for this :-)

Do you have an idea/preference for what the new bonus puzzles should be?

Haha... apparently... like last time. Unless you got some new interesting puzzles like I saw something about triplets mentioned, a guess a lot of people would enjoy twins. I guess we wanted the bonus puzzles doable for everyone or most people so something that's moderate and fun would be good. What we've had so far is fine so you could always just generate a new batch of the same.

Any variations (e.g. with zero)?
