Hi folks I'm Dick, 77 years old,live in Texas and bored with backyard birds & TV. I have some health issues that rein me indoors most of the time so have resorted to doing these puzzles to pass the time by.

I find that there is a solution as should be with effort and time but sometimes it takes me 2 to 3 hours to complete one,while others I just zip through. I use pure logic, in other words no trial and error, but I sometimes spend 15 to 20 minutes spotting and/or coming up with the path. I'm a little smarter than the average bear so why am I bogging down?

Anyone have any Tips/Tricks to make this easier/quicker?

Yes I always have been the impatient type,smile

Thanks in advance

dick

I agree. You might've gotten some help if your questions weren't so open ended.

How can someone know why you're bogging down if they don't know what you're doing? Nobody knows why some puzzles take you 2-3 hours or why it takes 15-20 minutes to spot a path.

Your chances of getting help would increase significantly if the questions were more specific.
