Enigma Index

I am posting some of my solutions to New Scientist puzzles here.  There are only a small selection of these puzzles – those that particularly interest me or those I use for testing various utilities that I have used in puzzle solving.   If you want a comprehensive coverage of the New Scientist puzzles in Python, I recommend Jim Randell‘s Enigmatic Code site.
