 Futoshiki samples
In the past few days, I cobbled together a Futoshiki solver / generator / visualizer.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Futoshiki

Here are a few samples, all are rated "easy":

3x3

4x4

Image

5x5

Image

6x6

Image

7x7

What do people think?

Yes, I do realize these are easy.

I'll add a few harder ones later.

Not for a new website, but for a puzzle book with a mix of puzzles.

This one should be a bit harder:

How would you rate it?

(I just now noticed the useless 5 < 6 clue by the way.. [blush] )

I actually thought it fell apart pretty quickly. Still enjoyable, but the 2's go in pretty much from the start with some fairly simple logic and that gives you a strong beginning.

Thanks for the feedback [thumbup]

Yep, that one runs pretty difficult. Got to a point about midway through where I was just struggling to pick off single digits out of a given cell which is about where the difficult puzzles for other types usually run.

In case you're up for another one, this one should be in between the previous puzzle
and the one before that:

Would agree that it's between the two in difficulty, though it probably tends towards the side of the first one.
