There's some very nice stuff in here--tricky but approachable. Been stuck a few times, but not irreversibly so, which is always nice.

You sort of forgot to change the permissions - it's still Anyone Edit :)

Anyway, I got stuck on Level 1 : 5 South, so I played and beat the rest of the rooms in the editor.

I liked the queen rooms, though I think the golem queen was a bit easy compared to the other two. Nice puzzles otherwise. ;)

This is a very nice hold. Good puzzles, varying degrees of difficulty. The level four rooms were cute, although not particularly challenging and didn't seem much in keeping with the spirit of the rest of the hold.

Also:

Several tough puzzles here.

Overall, I give it an 8 with 6.5 brains of difficulty.

Oh, and the permissions now appear to exclude everyone, including those who have mastered the hold. Was this intentional?

It was definitely a nice hold, though I agree that the "queens" on the last level were somewhat anticlimactic--it was basically "take out four monsters within thirty moves" eight times. All the same, well done.

A very good hold! Haven't completed it yet. A few new rooms that weren't in the beta, but still, I think it's the time to say Wel Done Jason!

Yes! Very nice hold! Just started it and I like it good so far. Since I wasn't around to get new versions on the beta testing, I am enjoying playing the new rooms you've added! Nice! I gave it a 9 with 6 brains of difficulty

Hey Jason, let me know when you change the permissions to "You & Masters" or better so I can download it. I'm getting impatient since these good reviews.

If I changed the permissions, everyone would have to play it again!

I'm not sure if I should do that..

technically, if all you changed was permissions, then all our demos would re-verify and all you'd do is occupy the spider for a while. but I don't see the big deal in making a hold non-editable or editable. I mean, it probably wasn't worth your time to change it from 'editable by anyone' in the first place.
