I’ve done very similar puzzles, mostly apps from Conceptis like Fill-a-pix and pic-a-pix. And yeah. Very addictive.
I took a quick peak at a fill-a-pix puzzle. Seems more complex than a nonogram, but, definitely, a similar concept.
Yes but do you keep your clothes on?
Um, yes? (I'm missing a joke here, aren't I?)
It's bound to involve sheep so don't ask.
Sheep and water draining against the laws of god and man.

Anyone here do nonogram puzzles? Since getting an iPad app of them, I've become seriously addicted, doing at least a dozen a day. It's about solving the location of marked off squares on a grid where your only clue is how many of those squares are in each row and column (Google it). Similar in concept to Sudoku in that solving smaller aspects of the puzzle adds information, but the whole experience is very relaxing and satisfying as the solution emerges.

I think of fill-a-pix as kind of a minesweeper in reverse, but without the permadeath if you fuck up.

I know of Minesweeper, but never actually played it (I've always been a Mac guy). Do fill-a-pix puzzles demand reconsider of the overall puzzle when you solve one little aspect, or is it more sequential in approach. That's what I find gives nonograms their happy juice—being confronted with what seems like a dead end (short of guessing) and then finding that one spot where there is only one answer, then that revelation alters the possibilities for other parts of the grid, so that, eventually, the only solution becomes apparent. It's that forced reconsideration of what seemed confounding after changing one little bit of information—I love that so much.

Definitely. Lots of times exactly that happens.

An observation: a lack of work ethic may very well save your life one day.

My best friend of almost 30 years left work two hours early because his work sucks and he wanted to go to the yarn store. The car/shooter (yet to be determined if shots were fired) struck right in front of his office building in NY. Thankfully, he was safely ensconced at Purl Soho getting yarn for his new granny blanket project.

LEARN FROM HIS LAZINESS.

I also left work early yesterday. I also was not harmed. Coincidence? Draw your own conclusions.
