I also hate those GPS co-ordinates! The challenging part of the puzzle should be detangling the logic, not keeping way-too-similar strings of numbers straight.

Also on my hate list for similar reasons are the zip line ones with the same numbers for feet and mph, puzzles with two hour increments so there's an am and pm of the same time, any puzzle with both Philip and Felipe or Paul and Paula, etc.

My least favorite are the BC puzzles, where I have to remember that the higher number is less recent. You often have to work backwards.

Ugh, the coordinates, medals, and ziplines are the absolute worst! Anything where almost all the categories are numbers isn't great, especially when they're very similar numbers. Oh, and any time I have to spend 20 seconds figuring out the increment.

I LOVE the ones about ordering at restaurants/cafes for some reason. Any of the ones that align directly with my interests are also really nice-- cakes, wines, dogs...

The ones with years ago (like when something was found 100,000 years ago), since the clues sometimes can be read that the years go either way.

I enjoy all the puzzles about food, especially dessert.

I hate all those freaking windmills with Dutch names, aughhhhh.

Agree with the GPS comments.

I just hope no one produces a puzzle with mammoths and the co-ordinates where they found
Don't give them any ideas...

You guys are spot on.

The GPS coordinates and the Medal Count are far and away my least favorites, with (dis)honorable mentions going out to the zip lines, the "BC" ones, and the ones where you have to double check your categories (ie is Blake a client, or a trainer?, or is the futomaki roll in the first grouping, or the second?).

My favorites are usually the ones with colors or prices. Love the paintball one, the paper airplane one, airport luggage, darts, and varieties of honey. Honorable mentions to the potato launchers, 5K runners, bowlers, and the friends bringing snacks to a party.

Anything too ordinal adds so much processing overhead, especially if it's not immediately apparent how it relates to the axis (medals). I don't mind numbers when it's just integers, prices, or specific dates (those are some of my favourites). There are some puzzles where the clues are pretty much purely about ordinal relationships and those are enjoyable because they're challenging, but combine it with confusing and/or ordinal categories and I hate it (place finish). GPS coordinates have to be the worst just for sheer unreadability.

Running into clue names you've used recently is a bit of a headache. I did two of the case-date-outcome ones in the same day and two of the case names were the same... But otherwise those ones are really fun. Plus I like the theme.

I like the ones where two categories are the same 'type' of thing as a general rule. Pairs are a fun type of this one.

For whatever reason, I really like the ones that offer a clue with "The seven x's are..." or ones that offer six different ones. If they offer five or four, I get annoyed. My favorite topics are restaurants and dates!
