This game is unique in that it requires both logic and visual skills (sort of like Ripple Effect). But I'm not a big fan.

I like the Shakashaka puzzles I've seen. I'm looking forward to the more difficult sample puzzles.

Gate: 9 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name My Little Phony

Horse owners nickname Eric I.

I like it, in part because you end with an interesting pattern when you're finished.

Gate: 9 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Pferdinand

It's interesting. I like that it has a different logical feel.

Gate: 9 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

I love Shakashaka! Very psyched that you're adding it.

Gate: 10 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Lame Duck

The more shakashaka puzzles you publish the more I come to like them. Nurikabe is still my favourite but shakashaka is second place.

Gate: 11 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Lucky Quee

Horse owners nickname JacquiO

I love the new Shakashaka puzzles! I can't wait for the next one.

Gate: 12 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Xtra

Horse owners nickname GarethM

Nice, although seems harder in the player than on paper since you can't make notes.

Gate: 12 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Paladin

Horse owners nickname Saphon

I really enjoy Shakashaka. My favorite puzzles are the more abstract ones that don't feel like "Put the numbers in the right boxes". Akari has always been one of my favorites and Shakashaka is so different that I have to use new thought patterns. I REALLY enjoy it.

Gate: 13 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name pinxit

Horse owners nickname aphasia

I really like it so far. Quite different to most of the other puzzles.

Gate: 13 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Ghoulish Delight

Still getting used to Shakashaka, but I like it so far.

Gate: 14 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Rocinante

Horse owners nickname The Quixotic Yombo

I love the puzzles so far, and can't wait to see what kinds of ideas will show up in the larger puzzle sizes. It's a little tricky with the mouse though. I keep accidentally creating triangles that point the wrong way.

Gate: 14 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name suss-mahir

Horse owners nickname u-and-u

It is nice to have a new puzzle that requires a different way of thinking.

Gate: 15 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name firefly

Horse owners nickname ffron

Shakashaka is a good addition to your puzzles

Gate: 16 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Spooky Sam

I completed your first 8 samples and I enjoyed them.

Gate: 18 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Blob

Horse owners nickname Bob

Took a little while to develop solving theorems, but I find them enjoyable. I especially appreciate the op-art-like patterns of the finished puzzles.

Gate: 18 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Probono

Horse owners nickname Coalchaser

I haven't had the time to try all of the sample ones yet, but the few I've done so far were pretty neat. :)

Gate: 23 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Persistence

Horse owners nickname LightUrpleShro.Om

fun. confusing at first.

Gate: 24 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name My Obnoxious Horse

Horse owners nickname Edderiofer

I like the Shakashaka puzzles, especially how it only allows slanted walls that are possible.

Gate: 25 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Doopliss

Horse owners nickname Null

Definitely one of your best. Very inventive and a lot of fun to solve.

Gate: 26 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Of A Different Color

Horse owners nickname joshuazucker

I'm glad to have a new kind of puzzle! I'm not sure I really understand the logic of this new type well enough yet to comment very much on it. I think it will take a lot of practice for me to get good at it.

Gate: 26 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Stopheles

Horse owners nickname Spelvin

I like the puzzle, but the online interface is a little frustrating. Clicking in the correct corner quickly seems difficult.

Gate: 27 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Glue Stick

Horse owners nickname tlhinman

It's neat. Still would like to see LITS one day.

Gate: 29 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Retuned Daddio

Horse owners nickname detuned

I have only solved a few of these puzzles in the past and I'm looking forward to seeing more variety!

Gate: 31 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Tool Capes

Horse owners nickname CoolTapes

Shakashaka might be my new favourite type of puzzle on the site. Or maybe it just feels that way because it's still new to me. Either way, I love it when new puzzle types are added to nikoli.com, because Nikoli puzzles are pretty much impossible to find in print in my part of the world, and paying shipping costs for imported books isn't a good use of my limited funds. Keep them coming!

Gate: 32 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Old Peculier

Horse owners nickname TwilightTrinity

A lot of fun!

Gate: 38 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Raisin

Horse owners nickname Bosuonparedo

I look forward to solving them! But I hope there is a good mix of all difficulties. (I hope for LITS next!)

Gate: 41 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Long Shot

Horse owners nickname Kamendae

Interesting new puzzle. Seems a bit easy so far, though of course you have only provided easy-rated puzzles. I look forward to more difficult ones!

Gate: 47 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Limousine

Horse owners nickname Noggy

I've only started solving Shaka Shaka puzzles recently, but i'm really enjoying them. :) I'm very happy to see that there will be some published online from June, can't wait till then!

Gate: 53 Fell from horse before reaching goal.

Horse name Fifty

How the winners are ranked

The gate number is the key to winning the Nikoli Derby. The smallest gate number chosen by only one person is the winner. If two or more persons choose the same gate number they will lose the race. This means that you have to choose the smallest number that nobody else has chosen to win the race. What is the smallest number from 1 to 100?

Right, of course gate number 1 has the greatest advantage, but other horse owners know that too. If say, two or more horses are entered for each of gates 1 to 50, then the horse starting from gate 51 will win. Now, you have to guess the "smaller number" of those where you will be the only starting horse. The final ranking is ordered from smaller to larger numbers.
