Activity: Valentine's Puzzle Exchange (Part 1)
Participation Points: 10pts/5kts for completing the activity, +5 bonus points if you own a subscription to The Daily Prophet
Deadline: Sign-ups until February 5th, 11:59pm UTC. Assignments to be sent out by February 6th, 11:59pm UTC. Submission of puzzle presents due on February 12th, 11:59pm UTC.
Details: Papers have a ton of puzzles and games to entertain and amuse, but obviously, we all have our preferences. This activity will run much like a fic exchange, but with puzzles instead! You will sign up with a list of things that you're looking for in terms of the puzzles that you enjoy, including other likes and dislikes that you have. You will then get assigned another member and they will be tasked to create a puzzle for you. Creating the puzzle for a member is worth 10pts/5kts. (Signing up alone won't get you points.)

To participate, please fill out this form and submit below:


Here's a short list of puzzle types to get you started, too, as well as links for making the puzzles (which are just suggestions -- if you know a better site, use it!). If I'm missing anything let me know and I'll add it here:
* logic puzzle
* griddler (You can create one here)
* jigsaw (You can create one here)
* sudoku (You can create one here)
* crossword (You can create one here)
* word search (You can create one here)
* maze (You can create one here)
* fallen phrase (You can create one here)
* battleship solitaire (You can create one here)
* cryptogram (You can create one here)
* word scrambles (You can scramble them here)
* letter tiles (You can create one here)

I will either email or PM you with your assignment by February 6th, 11:59pm UTC. You will then have until February 12th, 11:59pm UTC to come up with the puzzle for your assignee. Creating the puzzle is worth 10pts/5kts. There are no partial points.
