Puzzle GP #8 - Appreciation for a few Puzzles

This is just a brief note of appreciation to the authors of puzzles 6 (Yajilin Battleship), 7 (Loop) and especially 17 (Slitherlink (Wolves and Sheep)) in this week's GP. I've (tried to) solve all the puzzles, but these three in particular were just *fun* to solve. It's obvious that great care went into making them.

To elaborate a bit more on my favorite, puzzle 17: Paper puzzles can't give us feedback while we solve them (unlike video game puzzles), and even a puzzle ostensibly named after a theme (like the common "skyscrapers" puzzle type) is rarely truly "about" that theme. But while solving puzzle 17, I actually slightly felt like I was saving the sheep and keeping away the wolves, which was a delightfully unexpected experience in a paper puzzle.

So, again: Thanks for making these puzzles. I had fun with them! :)

Thank you for your feedback. it's a pleasure to read.
