Happy New Year from Enigmatic Code!
There are now 923 Enigma puzzles on the site. There is a complete archive of all puzzles published from January 1979 – September 1985 and also from May 2002 – December 2013. Which is about 52% of all Enigma puzzles published in New Scientist, and leaves around 860 puzzles to add to the site.
In 2015 I added 160 Enigma puzzles (as well as a handful of puzzles from other sources). Here’s my selection of the ones I found most interesting to solve programatically this year:
Older puzzles (1984 – 1985)
Newer puzzles (2002 – 2003)
During 2015 I switched to posting puzzles twice a week (on Monday and Friday, with the occasional extra posting on Wednesdays if I had something interesting to post), so there are around 8 years worth of puzzles to go.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the site in 2015, either by adding their own solutions (programmatic or analytical), insights or questions, or by helping me source puzzles from back-issues of New Scientist.
