X15502: Puzzle Passionately, Procrastinate Productively in Spark 2023 (Mar. 18 - 19, 2023)
It's true! Logic puzzles are a fun way of putting off homework and responsibilities while benefitting by becoming smarter, and they're absolutely not a waste of time, MOM. We'll introduce the rules to some logic puzzles like Sudoku, Slitherlink (aka Loopy), KenKen (aka Keen/TomTom), and more! We'll cover all the main categories of logic puzzles, so you're sure to find something you'll like. We'll then go over some puzzles together while explaining our reasoning, and then you'll have lots of time for trying to solve puzzles on your own, while we go around and help.
