Small Alcazars can be solved with just a bit of intuition, but as you tackle larger levels, the many elegant and complex techniques of the game become more and more relevant.
It's much more fun to find these techniques by yourself than to read about them, so let me simply propose an exercise that may put you on the right path. Here are two Alcazar puzzles. I made the first one, and the second one was created by Edderiofer. Don't try to solve them! They are both impossible. But why? How can you prove that they have no solution?
Leave your questions and hints in the comments! You may use ROT13 (http://www.rot13.com/) to hide important clues for those who don't want to see them. I will give a complete explanation in
about a week. Have fun!
By the way: the Incredible November sale ends very soon. Make sure to order your copies of the Alcazar book before it ends!
