Number: Puzzle #3939
Genre: Second Turn

So am I mistaken, or is there an alternative solution to this puzzle?

As far as I can tell, this puzzle can also be solved in a slightly different way, by changing three connections a bit to the top right from the middle of the puzzle...

Let's number the disks from the top to the bottom, left to right. So the disk in the top square is 1, the one two to the bottom right from there is 2, the three on the row beneath that are 3, 4 and 5, etc. Let us consider the disks numbered 3, 4, 8, 9 and 12.

Now in the "approved" solution, 3 is connected to 4, 8 to 9 and 8 to 12.

In my alternative solution, 3 is connected to 8, 8 to 4, and 9 to 12.

Apart from these differences, the rest of the solution is the same in both alternatives. This should not be possible: there hould only be one, unique solution.


Kind regards,
Kroisos.

You mean like this?

In your solution, the loop does not turn at dots 4 or 9, which is against the rules of the puzzle.
