Friday Puzzler: Chapel of the Cross

Friday and Saturday puzzles were such a hit earlier in the year, I’m not sure why I forgot to do any since January. If you’ve never done one, fair warning, they’re pretty addictive. This first one, with 42 pieces is defined as “Tricky” by, and it took me 5:57 on my first try (probably closer to 5:00 because it had already started before I realized the timer was going). You can click on the image in the upper right to see what the picture looks like.

If you’re an experienced puzzler, as my dad is, you will find the above puzzle too easy. So to avoid mockery from old retired guys sitting in their easy chairs, I’ve created a harder version of the same image, this one with 72 pieces and defined as “Hard.” This one took me 11:18 on my first try. Remember to hit the “Reset” button on the upper right to start the clock at 0:00. Enjoy!
