This just added: if you "share" the site via Facebook or Google+,
you'll get a free booklet with 10 special puzzles:

- three tricky 4x4 puzzles
- one 10x10 twin puzzle
- two 11x11 puzzles
- a 7x7 puzzle, subtraction only
- a 15x15 puzzle
- a 9x9 puzzle with negative numbers (-4 ... 4)
- a patterned 8x8 puzzle

After you do the share, you'll get a message box with a thank you, and
the booklet will be downloadable from your account page.


As always, scream if anything isn't working as it should..

The same now also works for Google+: if you login using Google+,
then share using the "+1" button to the left of the puzzle, you'll get the booklet :-)

That said, so far 2 people (that's TWO) have logged in via Google+.. [huh]

A few more updates (there goes my Saturday [tongue] ):

- iPhone (and related) fixes (for example, it was possible to do the subscriber-only puzzles via the iPhone (!))
- Twitter/Facebook/Google+ share links for individual puzzles

Soon it will be possible to do the "site share" thing without having to be
logged in to Facebook/Google+ (which gets you the booklet).

Now you can also share the site on Facebook/Google+ whilst
logged in using a regular account.

I'll add a few more puzzles to the "special booklet" as well :-)

Edit: four more puzzles were added:
- a 7x7 puzzle, subtraction only
- a 15x15 puzzle
- a 9x9 puzzle with negative numbers
- a patterned 8x8 puzzle

I tried to logged in via Google+, but it breakes all my progress. That's why I reverted to normal login.
Maybe, if you can implement merging of native account and G+ account, that will be more convinient to stay always logged in here.

Yes, that's next on the list, and it should be that difficult to implement:
1) login normally
2) "merge" with Google+/Facebook

This 9x9 with negative numbers (-4 thru 4?) is an interesting novelty that perhaps could be included as "extra puzzle" alternating , i.e, on thursdays with the 7x7 with negative numbers (every other week) [thumbup]

It is. I thought I'd run out of novelties, but there you go :-)

Patrick, when you introduced the 5x5 puzzle ‘-2..2’, I was forced to update my system.
I chose for an ‘extra layer’, that is: the set of figures to be used.
So you might use as well a set of prime numbers!

Yes, that has been on my "ideas list" for a long time now: use an arbitrary set of numbers.

It's not even that hard to put in (fairly large project, because code has to change
in many places, but it's not difficult)
