c) Karala (96 pages): It is being published since 2004. Included puzzle types are Paint By Numbers and its variations.

What is the deal with this blog?

Our magazines are published in Turkish language, but as the puzzles are mostly free from language, we wanted to make the magazines available to puzzlers all over the world by giving the instructions in English. This is the aim of this blog, providing explanations for the puzzles in English.

How will you use this blog?

Contents of each magazine will be posted in the blog. When you click on a puzzle name, it will direct you to a PuzzleWiki page that includes the example and English instructions of that puzzle. This blog will not contain the puzzles that are published in the magazines, it will serve as a guide for the printed magazines.
