After you go to the Puzzlephil site click the "Play Online" button and then "Kuhweide" to play the Cows puzzles.
This is a logic puzzle I found at the Puzzlephil site. It appears under the name "Kuhweide," which translates to cows. There is a square grid in which some of the squares contain cows. The grid must be divided into square-shaped regions, and each region must contain one and only one cow. No regions can be empty or contain 2 or more cows. The challenge is thus to correctly divide up the grid in square regions with one cow each. This looks similar to Shikaku puzzles, where you create rectangular regions according to the given numbers. Here is the link:

Here's a daily puzzle that is very much like Spokes. This puzzle is called "Rohre" and it's at the Puzzlephil site. Rohre is a German word meaning "pipe."

Nicely done!
You are right. These are very similar to Kropki, the only difference being that dots that represent multiplication by 2 aren't used here. The size 7, 8, and 9 puzzles can be challenging and require a lot of patience.
A Renzoku puzzle is very much like Consecutive Sudoku. A renzoku puzzle uses a square grid, and each row and column must contain the numbers from 1 to the highest number once and only once. Black dots appear in between some squares. A black dot means those 2 numbers must be consecutive, When there is NO black dot between 2 squares then these squares CANNOT contain consecutive numbers.

After reading my previous posts about Stitches logic puzzles I realize I need to add other points about these puzzles. The grid is divided into regions called "blocks." Each block to must be connected to the adjacent blocks by stitches. Also, there can only be one stitch linking 2 blocks. Two holes that are horizontally or vertically adjacent and part of the same block cannot be linked by a stitch. You'll notice that some squares cannot have holes for this reason, and thus those squares must be marked empty with X's.

I've found a new kind of logic puzzle called "Stitches." The basic idea here is that you start out with a square grid. The edge information numbers at the sides tell you how many "holes" must appear in each row and column. These holes are linked with small lines called stitches. Each hole is linked to an adjacent hole, either horizontally or vertically. Squares that will remain empty are marked with X's. The object of a stitches puzzle is to correctly place each hole and the "threads,' or lines that link adjacent holes.

I've also seen Youtube video links that give tutorials on how to solve Stitches puzzles. You can find these by entering "stitches tutorial solving a puzzle" at the Youtube home page.
