Talking to Casty
We have about thirty authors who have supplied puzzles to our "nikoli.com" and "mobile nikoli.com" sites. Among these, Casty is the mass-producer, the one with the most puzzles to his credit. He is in his early thirties but his name, occupation and everything else remains a mystery.
NobHave you been interested in puzzles since you were a kid?
NobReally? But how did you get to know about pencil puzzles then?
NobNikoli Vol. 103 came out in the summer of 2003. That means you met Nikoli just four years ago, that's a surprise. Then, were you fascinated by Nikoli?
NobThen, when did you start to make puzzles?
NobBut why did you start to make puzzles?
NobWhat do you pay attention to in your puzzles?
NobNow let me ask you Casty, what is it, making puzzles, to you?
NobYou have been making so many puzzles every month. Where do you do it and how much time do you spend on it?
NobDid you try to solve your own puzzles?
NobAnd what do you aim for?
NobNow the last question, anything that you want to tell people solving your puzzles?
