Some months ago I solved a puzzle, and pressed "Check", and up came that annoying "Incorrect" message. It had seemed a bit easy, but I checked it, and it was definitely correct. Press again: still "Incorrect".

And then I realised. OMG! I'd thought it was a Star Battle puzzle, and it was actually LITS (or maybe I'd solved it as LITS, and it was Star Battle; or maybe....my Alzheimer's is kicking in). Anyway, I've been thinking this would make a really good challenge for all of you puzzle designers out there - design a grid that can be used and uniquely solved for two (or maybe even three, or....?) different types of puzzles...

I look forward to seeing such a grid (maybe with numbers and sheep and trees?)....anyone up for the challenge?

Pretty sure that's been done at least twice on this site.

Here's my (horribly easy) set; a Walls/Light Up combo.

Here's Wouter's take on it, with Country Road/LITS.

There's also mathgrant's Double Back/Norinori combo on his blog.

If there are any others, please post them here.

Typical. I think of a stunningly brilliant original idea, and everyone else has already thought about it and done it.

Let's hope that none of your other original ideas turn up as ones listed here.

I made these puzzles but LITS has multiple solutions and the pair of puzzles have been drawn back.
I've fixed these puzzles but the solutions are too obvious.
So, I'll try another challenge.
