A new puzzle for the new Alcazar players

Have fun!

I made this puzzle for those who discovered Alcazar in the last week, since I released the book. By the way, I'd like to hear how you heard about the game!


Don't hesitate to post a comment. The Alcazar community is still very small.

    I just found out about your puzzles yesterday but I think I'm already hooked. Hanging out for the android app. I found out from this tweet https://twitter.com/Jonathan_Blow/status/468890123233681408 which was retweeted by Erin Robinson @Livelyivy

    Same here but saw it on Jonathan Blow's Twitter feed directly and loved. Solved all the online ones yesterday.
    This one seems broken (at least for me) btw. As soon as I fill in a line piece connecting to the bottom left door it kinda deadlocks in my browser :(

    Oh! You're right! I replaced it with a new puzzle that will not deadlock. Thanks for noticing.

    +1 for hearing about this via Jonathan Blow's twitter. After solving all the online ones, I tried printing out the downloadable ones (which initially seemed like a lot of hassle), but I was surprised how much I enjoyed solving these on paper, although I don't think drawing into a book is for me (mostly because I'm a little too slapdash when it comes to penning things in), I'd love to see a paper friendly (e.g. 9 puzzles per page) print-at-home version of the book available for purchase at some point in the future.

    I also was pointed to the website by Jonathan Blow's retweeted tweet, but I prefer the online puzzles as they're easier for me personally to visualize and I backtrack a ton.

    This was the most fun puzzle yet! I am eagerly awaiting the iOS app for Alcazar.

    Well I have to say a big thank you to Jonathan Blow in that case!

    @Steve: Yes, a lot of people (including myself) like to play on paper. It also allows larger puzzles, because players are more patient on paper. The book is really good for that. You can erase several times without breaking the paper or removing the ink. Beginners often need to erase, and experts also make mistakes once in a while.

    The paper friendly print version is a great idea! I'll see what I can do about it.

    I also heard about this from Jonathan Blow's twitter, I really like the online puzzles. I tried signing up for a newsletter, but got a 404 when I clicked to confirm. When is the android version going to be released?

    I found Alcazar from Jon Blow's tweet, as well. I love logic puzzles and this one scratches a very particular itch. Love the book, too!

    The onlooker ultimately folds in on itself in a dizzying self-referential and self-reverential master class that give way into a black outlet of puzzle solving from which no account can escape.
