Puzzles from The Quest

Sean Kelly and I have put together a weekly puzzles section for the Reed studentbody newspaper - The Quest. Here are some previous puzzles sections. By the way, if you are looking at the page from somewhere on Reed campus, then you will also be able to view PDF versions of The Quest here.

I'll put up solutions to some problems, but I'd prefer it if people would send me their original solutions - I'll post them and give credit. Click on the links below the images to view the solutions for that week.

Note: To view these puzzles, you'll need either (1) Adobe Acrobat Reader or (2) a program like ghostview as well as a program like WinZip or gzip to decompress the files. Since *almost* all of these puzzle sections require physically drawing on the page with a pen or pencil, I'd recommend printing them.

All puzzles made with the awesome power of free software:  emacs, The Gimp, XFig, and  LATEX.
