What is a Fun Puzzle?
I was curious to learn what makes a puzzle Fun so that I could devote my time to only working on Fun Puzzles. With that goal in mind, I set out to make a list of Fun and Not Fun puzzles. I knew this would be a contentious topic with many opinions, so I took an informal poll and below are the results. It turns out, I didn't agree with all of the choices, for example I like Logic puzzles. But I decided not to impose my beliefs, and have passed on the list to the puzzling community.
If a puzzle conforms to a special rule, we call it a Fun Puzzle.
Use the survey results below to find the rule.
