Twin puzzles with number swap - 4 new puzzles
4 new puzzles of the Twin puzzle with number swap variation, as seen in my earlier forum posting.
These puzzles are similar to a standard twin puzzle, but to make it a little different the numbers in the left puzzle have been swapped for a different number in the right puzzle. A number will not ever be swapped with itself, it will always be changed to a different number. There is an example in my earlier forum post that will make it clearer how this type of puzzle works.

Each puzzle gets a little more difficult, the third puzzle uses a different set of numbers in each puzzle, on the left it uses 1 to 7, and on the right it uses 4 to 10. The fourth puzzle is similar to the third in that it uses a different set of numbers in each puzzle, but this time it is up to you to work out what the numbers are.

Of the three different variations that I have shown in this forum, I think this type is the most interesting. The overlapping puzzles can be solved mostly just like a standard twin puzzle, but these "number swap" puzzles require some additional solving techniques.

I am still dealing with the first swapping puzzle. There is something that my brain hates with these puzzles.

These are going to wait til I have more time. I am being obsessed with book points right now.
