It has been over 3 months since we have seen a new Hanjie. They are my favorite. Please do more of them.

I agree. Am disappointed each day when once again no hanjie.

I've expressed this issue with Dr. Moore previously. He has said that he agrees that an average of at least one a week is reasonable, however, I've yet to see that happen in the last few years. It's very frustrating. We've had 31 in the last year, and of those 15 came in February and March meaning that in the other 44 or so weeks of the past year, we've had 16.

Worse, most of those that have been made are easy, smaller ones. In the early days, there were 40x40 puzzles, but I haven't seen one of those in years. I really enjoy those, and personally find anything smaller than 30x30 too small, but maybe that's just me. In any case, we've had only 13 30x30 or greater in the past year and I seem to recall the same sort of amount from recent years.

I personally find myself replaying the groups I've purchased over and over. I'm sure glad I bought them while they were available. Maybe you can ask Dr. Moore if he would make the legacy sets available. That wouldn't help me, but might help you.

I'm sure these are hard puzzles to create, but I would say the same about other styles. Anyway, this is an ongoing windmill I've tilted at for several years now. I hope you are more successful than I.

Hi everyone,

You all raise extremely valid points.

To apologise for the scarcity of Hanjie over the past couple of years, I have just added a free book of Hanjie to the accounts of all daily subscribers. You can view the book by choosing 'Subscriber Hanjie' from the sets list, or clicking here.

If you have previously had a daily subscription but let it lapse in the past year because of the lack of Hanjie, please contact me (using the 'Contact puzzlemix' link at the top of this page, or by posting here) and I will credit the set of Hanjie to you too.

There are 40 puzzles in the set, of pretty much all sizes - right up to 40x40.

You will only see the set if you are a current daily subscriber, and it won't be available to future subscribers unless you join during September 2018 (and even then only if you ask me to add it to your account).

I hope this will at least partially make up for the Hanjie that have been missed. I will also take steps to ensure Hanjie are restored to the regular cycle of puzzles, and that new Hanjie books become available over the next few weeks.

Thanks to all of you for your continued support of the site.

Hi Gareth

It's been a while since I've logged in & was pleasantly surprised by your gift.

Please tell me where to find the 'sets list' ?
I've clicked 'View all sets of puzzles' & 'View all legacy sets' but for some reason I'm not seeing 'Subscriber Hanjie'.
Actually I've clicked on practically all links in my search.

I can find them by clicking the link you gave for 'clicking here' but how do I get them to stay within the games I can play after dismissing your message?

Also out of curiosity where can I see when my subscription expires? Do we get a reminder?

Many thanks

Hi justfascinating,

It appears on the right-hand side of the 'View all sets of puzzles' page, in alphabetical order; or if you open the main puzzle page it is the first set to appear in the horizontal slider directly above the 'View all sets of puzzles' link.

Or you can click the link in my message two up, underlined in blue.

I've checked your account, and you do have the set.

Hope this helps!
