Here are some 13x13 puzzles for your amusement. Other than the grid size, this is standard Twixt, with link removal. I may submit these eventually to http://www.ibiblio.org/twixtpuzzles/ but I want to put them on display for a while first in the hope someone will spot any flaws or alternate solutions. Click just below an image to see the solution.

I had a third puzzle, but I found a flaw as I was about to post.

More later, perhaps. Please message me with any question or comment.

Cool, I got #3 ok and confidently reasoned it out before peeking at the solution, and #4 was indeed difficult (beyond my puny skills). Thanks for these puzzles!

Well, the first move is pretty inevitable/obvious.

Thanks again for these interesting problems!
