I must have missed something, because I had to guess. Apparently someone else (or more than 1 other person) had to guess as well. Maybe I just wasn't as patient as I could have been, but once I have to start searching line after line trying to find 1 more step, I get frustrated and start "guessing" or making "assumptions."

Okay, this is what I did. I made the puzzle, it passed the checker and the helper, so I thought that would be too easy for those of you who like a good challenge. So I took out two pixels and the helper got stuck. Which doesn't mean it's not solvable, it still passed the checker. Then I worked it manually to see if it was possible to solve it without guessing. I did have to resort to edge logic several times, and had to do lots of counting, and searching for clues. I spent many hours on it, but I did manage to finish it myself, so I thought it would be just the right sort of challenge for you seasoned puzzlers. But if it's too frustrating, well that's not any fun.

Should I put the two pixels back in to make it easier to solve?

That's just my opinion, though. There are many out there who enjoy spending hours on one puzzle. If you say it is logically solvable, then I will take your word for it. I am sure there are plenty of people here that like it the way it is, and are happy for this challenge. Don't change it. I thought it was a nice image... I just prefer slightly easier puzzles. That's all.

Well, your opinion is very helpful, as are the opinions of the others, as I try to figure out just the right amount of challenge. Sometimes I think I should make more smaller easy ones, and other times I think I should make more difficult ones. So I'll make both! :)

Yes, then you can please most everyone on here.

This is logically solvable, and very nice.

Thank you, Jan.

I enjoyed it. My son just finished an Egyptian unit at school complete with an OPET festival-very timely! They have moved onto the Hebrews....

Thanks, Shasta. What is an OPET festival? When I was a kid (very, very long ago), they only taught us American history, and a skewed version at that When I was a teenager, my big brother gave me a book on "Religions of the World" that included history and cultural influences. Very eye opening. And mind opening.

It was very cool. They mummified chickens, had Egyptian food, dressed in Egyptian clothes (white towels). They do a Polynesian day and a medieval day too.

What a challenge, but I loved it. Thanks.

Really awesome image and a very tough puzzle for me. Like others I did get frustrated and started anticipating (ie: guessing). Very happy I stuck with though. You did a great job in a small space.

Thanks so much, Velma. I remember struggling through the solve on this one myself. (✬‿✬)
