Talking to bay wolf Jr
This is where we interview authors making problems for nikoli.com. Our guest this time is bay wolf Jr. He is a university student of 21. He made his debut recently in nikoli.com. But he has played an active part in our publications, widely, from way back.
NyanBazWhat kind of kid were you when you were small?
NyanBazWhat kind of books did you read?
NyanBazThat's a story of a magical world. If I'm not mistaken. Do you like SF.
NyanBazWere you good at school study?
NyanBazDid you do puzzles?
NyanBazDid you know pencil puzzles in the Sudoku boom.
NyanBazFantastic. You make a lot of giant size problems for nikoli.com. Do you still like big problems?
NyanBazFrom when have you been contributing puzzles?
NyanBazI remember Kaito-ranma that is a puzzle cutting the board by straight lines. It's difficult to contribute puzzles with original rules from the beginning. You still contribute puzzles to the Omopa page. Maybe your work was published in all issues since your debut? I think I spot your name in every issue.
NyanBazWhich puzzles do you like best?
NyanBazRight, you invented Norinori. It has its own Pencil Puzzle Book now.
NyanBazWhich puzzles do you like other than Omopa?
NyanBazWhat is it in those two that you like?
NyanBazGood point. Are there other puzzles you like?
NyanBazYou really want to do things in just the way you want. What level of difficulty do you like?
NyanBazWhen you make a problem, are you conscious of the difficulty? Do you begin to make puzzles after deciding how difficult they should be?
NyanBazAdjusting difficulty is difficult. But your easy problems are easy like they should be.
NyanBazDo you aim at problems you think seem like fun?
NyanBazDifferent authors have different likes and dislikes. That's why there are problems of different types in nikoli.com. Are there authors you are paying special attention to?
NyanBazSure, they're well made. But now, what hobbies do you have other than puzzles?
NyanBazYou are interested in a lot of things. Do you want to become a researcher in the future?
NyanBazWow. Will you continue making puzzles?
NyanBazThe puzzles that you invent in the future, just could end up in nikoli.com. But now, to you, what is a puzzle?
NyanBazNow the last question, anything that you want to tell people solving your puzzles?
NyanBazThank you for today!
