Logic Puzzle Love: Tents

Back before spring break, I tried out two new-to-me logic puzzles with my students.  I already blogged about the Slants puzzles from Brain Bashers.  Today, I want to blog about the Tents puzzles from Brain Bashers.  

These Tents puzzles can be found here on the Brain Bashers website.

I created a one-page introduction with the rules for these Tents puzzles to give to my students.  

  
Then, I used my snipping tool to grab several puzzles for my students to try their hands at.

I didn't actually try any of these puzzles out for myself before giving them to my students.  

Here's how my first puzzle went: 


I thought I was doing good, and then all of a sudden things just stopped falling into place.  I had no idea where/when I had made a mistake with my logic.  My students also really struggled with this first puzzle.

I'm happy to report that I did much better with the subsequent puzzles!


One of my students came back from Spring Break saying she had done some of the puzzles over break and really enjoyed them.  I call that a win!

I've uploaded the file I created to introduce my students to these puzzles here.

  1. The tent puzzles are similar to Nurikabe puzzles on Sporcle. One quizmaker has made mini, medium, and large puzzles so there's a puzzle for everyone—or any amount of time.
