Without giving anything anyway --
Did anyone else have a harder time with than usual this particular 12 x 12?

Ever curious,

That 12x12 was real difficult, 4 hours not 1-2 hours.

It is quite tricky. I haven't solved it yet. I couldn't tell you how long I've spent on it so far, but I'd say it's well over an hour.

I had a look through the 12x12 puzzles for the past month and there's a huge variation in the number of solvers, from a low of 73 to a high of 473. Most of them were 300+. But the previous Sunday was only 109 and this one has been solved by 133 people so far.

I just finished it. I definitely agree that it was substantially harder than most.

Likewise. Still fewer than 200 solvers, so likely to be at lower end of spectrum in terms of number of times solved.

The 12x12 puzzles are usually reasonably easy, this puzzle was harder than the typical 12x12 but still not too hard. Without giving away too much for people who still want to solved the puzzle, the first two things to do are to add the cages in columns 5&6, and then add the cages in columns 1-4, after that rest of the puzzle is easily solved.
