Optimizing Puzzles....

要稱它為"找出最佳解題目", 還是"多解題"??
我不曉得, 但是它卻是你玩Sudoku, Tents, Battleships 以外的另一謎題選擇。

題目的最大誘因應該就是, 一般的題目只要你解出答案, 這個題目就算被破解了; 而好的 Optimizing Puzzles 則是讓你很容易就有一個"答案", 但這個答案所代表的分數可能不是你期望的, 你會不斷地挑戰, 想要得到更高的分數....
最精采的是, 你永遠不曉得你所得到的分數, 是不是最高的那一個....

一般的線上 Puzzles 賽, 通常都會在幾題中點綴個一兩題 Optimizing Puzzles, 主要還是以單一解的 Puzzle 為主。從IPST, FORSMARTS 到已經掛了的 PQRST 各比賽皆是如此。唯一全部都是 Optimizing Puzzles 的比賽是 PDT, 不過它是個結合設計與解題的比賽, 參加人數有限制, 更重要的一點是 - 它也掛了....

德國在今年三月將舉辦線上的Optimizing Puzzles, 一共四類別, 各五題, 總共廿題, 玩到你掛掉為止(你只有一個月的時間來解題)
它的slogan也很棒: Good-Better-Best(從好到更佳, 從更佳到極致)
以下是它的英文說明比賽規則, 就原諒小弟我忙, 不再翻譯:

Open German Optimizing Puzzle Championship 2007

Good - Better - Best

German Optimizing Puzzle Championship
The first Open German Optimizing Puzzle Championship will take place in March 2007. All you need for participation (for example instructions, the puzzles and the answer page) can be found on this web site.

Logic puzzles (like sudoku) usually have only one correct answer. Optimizing puzzles are different. Far from it: "optimizers" have a lot of answers. The challenge is to find the best possible one. Of course it depends on the very problem itself whether an answer can be called a good one. A tricky maze for example might ask for the shortest way possible.

The Optimizing Puzzle Championship will consist of 20 optimizing puzzles. There are four different categories with five "optimizers" each. You will have about a month time to find and submit your best answers. In the end there will be certificates and champions’ cups for the best participants in each category and for the overall winner.

This championship is an open championship. This means: participation is open to puzzle solvers from all over the world.

If you want to participate you have to register once. From March, 1st 2007 the puzzle descriptions will become available via this web site. Puzzle descriptions mainly are: The instructions for the puzzles (as well as the point values you might obtain). At the same time the answer page via which you can submit your answers will become available. (Answers can be corrected and improved as long as the championship lasts. Your best answer will be saved and can be activated at any time).

As soon as the championship is over, there will be a list with the results of all participants. The best answer to each puzzle will be posted as well. The prizes will be sent to the winners within the next couple of weeks.

The championship is organized and realized by Logic Masters Deutschland e.V. , the German association for logic puzzles. Its aim is to make logic puzzles more popular throughout Germany.

我想最讓我感動的是它最後一句話: Its aim is to make logic puzzles more popular throughout Germany.
如果我們玩 Puzzles 的目的都在此, 而不是在找出第一名或第二名, 或是宣稱它有助於智慧長進等等, 我想不只是 Puzzles, 連數學都會成為國內孩子的最愛。

主辦單位: Logic Masters Deutschland e.V. (它也是WPF 的德國會員代表)
官網: Open German Optimizing Puzzle Championship 2007 (放心, 是英文)

三月一日, 線上登錄及題目說明同時開放, 享受這場 Puzzle 的盛宴吧....
