8x8 timed
How hard would it be to implement this, for curiosity sake? I have my typical interest in more timed puzzles, and this seems like a logical step.

Fairly straight-forward to implement.
Will take about 4-8 hours I think.

Re: 8x8 timed
I love this idea.
But they have to be easy 8x8, no modulo, subtraction only or exponentiation. That way I'm thinking a puzzle can be done in 3-4 minutes. so a total of 20 minutes max to do all 5 of them. Or maybe limit the number to 2 or 3 instead of 5.

I'm guessing that any given day's medium 8x8 would fit the bill pretty well.

I like this idea (except for the fact that it means more time spent on the site doing puzzles). There are no regular "easy" 8x8s. So yeah, a medium would work.

I'll add it to the "suggestions list", but quite a few other things have priority though.
