I pride myself on leading the pack for puzzles solved*

Joking aside, it’s awesome to see this, and thanks for posting! I’ve

totally dropped the ball on adding puzzles for Andrey’s colorings, but it

is clear I need to refocus and finish doing that. I never thought we’d see

this many of the puzzles solved, and imagine the remaining 174 must be

those that are especially difficult (deepcut with many pieces).

Cheers,

Roice
