AWOKK, Day 2: The KENtathlon
You’ve come back! Great! Welcome to Day 2 of MJ4MF’s A Week of KenKen series. In case you missed the fun we had yesterday…
- Day 1: Introduction
As the early riser in our family, I’m responsible for taking our dog Remy on his morning walk. Given his advanced age (13) and breed (golden retriever), our veterinarian says that I should walk him 15-20 minutes every morning.
But the length of Remy’s morning walk is completely independent of any professional recommendations. Instead, it depends entirely on the amount of time it takes me to solve a 6 × 6, a 5 × 5, and a 4 × 4 KenKen puzzle.
I call it the KENtathlon.
Here are three puzzles for you to solve as a KENtathlon. The order in which you solve them doesn’t matter. I don’t even care if you take a break between puzzles. The only thing I would recommend is that you complete each puzzle in one sitting with no break — but, hell, this is for fun, so I don’t much care if you ignore that suggestion, too.
Post your combined time for all three puzzles in the comments.
If you’d like to compete against other KENthusiasts, you can register for the KenKen International Championship, to be held in New York City on December 18. (Unfortunately, registration isn’t open yet… check www.kenken.com in the coming months for details.)
