Editor's Notes

January 14, 2019:

Considered traditional gradient puzzles as well as those that offer a slight twist. For the former, added Clemens Habicht models as well as the Areaware Black/White, which are known for their quality and difficulty. As to the latter, added the Ceaco Citrus and Ravensburger Krypt Silver, both of which should offer a challenge to even pro puzzlers.
