The Menneske super hard puzzles are rated, usually with a two digit number. I gather that the higher the number, the harder the puzzle. Can someone tell me exactly what that number represents?

Sure, that's an easy one, it's right here.

By the way, if you understand it, let the rest of us know, because I don't know if anyone else understands it. Wink

No, Marty, I don't really get it either, despite reading it a couple of times. I have noticed that the numbers are merely correlated with difficulty (as most solvers would find I think), and the correlation seems quite low up to about 100 - e.g. a 25 might be much harder than a 75.

I read the FAQ, too. That's why I have no idea how the number is derived. I think the FAQ must be a translation from ancient Norwegian.
