stop71551yHaven't played a puzzle in years, but i enjoy them.
dootlurk6511yI love puzzles! The problem solving is my favourite aspect of development, and I get the same rush (albeit smaller) from solving a puzzle as I do fixing a bug
Quite like puzzle video games but I can’t do crosswords, sudoku or anything that they print in those puzzle magazines
Scramjet271yI love puzzles, but there are many types of them. Being good at one doesn't necessarily make you good at another....
I don't mind puzzles but I don't really enjoy them for long periods of time, even in videogames.
Wordle is nice because it's one puzzle a day so you can't really get too bored or burn yourself out. Its not incredibly hard but I also don't feel dissatisfied if I don't get it right so it's not too much of an up or down, just a "make your brain think differently for 2-10 minutes" kinda thing (for me).
I love burr and sequential puzzles hell one of my favorite YouTubers is Chris Ramsey
I grew up in a crossword solving family.
It's not something I do often but if I'm doing a long breakfast and have a paper you bet I'll give it a go.
To me - the skills don't translate to other games.
Everyone seems to be obsessed with wordle at the moment so it got me wondering.
How many programmers here enjoy or are good at puzzles?
Personally I don’t enjoy puzzles too much nor am I great at them.
Do you need to be good at one to be good at the other?
