You are probably still running around in you fancy pants after yesterday, so lets try something a little less frenetic and more cerebral. Ideal for waking up on a Sunday morning before contemplating fighting your way through traffic to get your holiday gifts.

So what on earth is this?

Its a simple puzzle game of rearranging vertices until the net has not crossing edges. Simple yes? Actually it is quite easy, once you have inadvertently invented a large range of topological proofs in your brain. Which people tend to do. No bells and whistles, just the genuine satisfaction of solving a tricky puzzle.

    @Kat, your remark inspired me to work through up to Level 12, and I concur that eyes and motivation both seem to give out at about that point. After about level 9 one ends up spending a heck of lot of time painstakingly reversing twists that tangle a couple of otherwise well-sorted clusters. A way of dragging whole clusters and of reorienting them would help. Fun game once through as far as it goes tho’.

    OK I think level 18 is my limit.
