:thumbsup: Sounds like you're always thinking outside the box. :flowers:

Try this:
Posted Image

Objective:
*Must connect each colored box to each dot and visa verse.
*you do NOT need to connect each box to each other. nor do you have to connect each dot to each other

Rules:
*No lines can intersect or overlap or cross, or underlap.
*You cannot go through one object to get to another.


Next one: (got it from a site. i'll post the source with the answer later, so i don't give away the answer)


How can you arrange six lines so that each line touches all of the others:

Here's a less visual puzzler:

A water lily growing in a circular pond doubles in size every day. It takes thirty days to cover the whole pond. How long does it take to cover half the pond?
