We will have people at East Croydon station all day with a shuttle service to the hotel with a round trip of approximately 30 minutes to minimise waiting. If numbers warrant, we will also have a direct coach from Gatwick. We will also look to organise shared taxis (up to 8 people) from Heathrow, Stansted and Luton.”
Please welcome Craig Kasper, our new author on the blog. It is nice that we have someone else publishing puzzles here as well.
Onto the puzzle itself, this is the last of the Nonogram that goes together with the previous two. If you have yet to figure out what the theme is, they are the symbols of the races used in a certain competitive video game.
New for today, we present to you an not-particularly-difficult fillomino with an eye-catching pattern.
Also new for today, “we” includes an additional puzzle author – yours truly. My name is Craig Kasper, and to my knowledge I am Canada’s most frequent contributor of puzzles to the US Puzzle Championship and the World Puzzle Championships.
My thanks go to the Canada Puzzle Team for allowing me access to their blog to surprise you with puzzles here and there. I look forward to finding other ways to work with them in the future.
