Here's one sample, how is it?

That was pretty easy, honestly. I might even call it a shade too easy. Then again, the Tuesday 9x9 is generally taxing enough that an equally taxing 10x10 can be a bit much. So my vote would be to make the Tuesday 10x10 slightly harder than the example here, but easier than the current standard.

I actually really like the Friday 10x10, btw. If all the puzzles were of a similar pattern and complexity it would get old in a hurry but as a change of pace it is one of my favorites.

Thanks, as always.

Amused, solved quickly on paper, more near to easy than medium, however it's sad to remove the 10x10 difficult on tuesday's, perhaps you could swap the tuesday's and friday's 10x10's so that the difficult one goes to friday's which is a more "quite" day.

Decreasing the level of the 10x10 on tuesday's creates additional "contradiction" (time spent versus points obtained) as exposed in the past here in the Forum when talking about the comparison between the 14 points for the easy 10x10 on friday's and the 9 points of the difficult 9x9 on tuesday's [confused] [confused].

Now that we have heard from 2 of the better puzzlers, how about something from a "plodder" ......worked on the puzzle for 25 minutes and got to a point where I had a 2 and a 7 which was supposed to add up to 11.....obviously, I had made a mistake......spent the next 5 minutes looking for a plausible solution and finally gave up....just couldn't see where the mistake occurred!!

Swapping the 10x10 would be great

That is pretty amazing :-)

Below a screenshot for historical purposes (did anyone get one of the 100000 ?)

Later I'll collect some more stats on mparisi's puzzling history [blink]

This is a happy day for this "club" of Calcudokers. Congratulations for this milestone [thumbsup] [thumbsup] [thumbsup] , I am sure one day mparisi will set that figure in 200,000.
