A hold consisting of self-contained puzzles in that style, with levels consisting of either single rooms or a small handful of rooms that can be easily scouted without committing to any permanent moves, with a stat reset at the start of each level could be interesting though.

Completely agree!

For those who haven't been following the Kickstarter updates, the content for Twisty Little Passages is complete and print ready. It turned out very well! I don't want to spoil content for those who want a clean experience, but you can view general details about the creative process and brief early feedback for the finished product via that KS link.

This project was a concerted team effort, in which each individual's contributions had a significant positive impact on the project as a whole. It's been very exciting for me to see the initial germ of an idea come into being as a real, physical thing -- an amalgam of many talents and skills combined in one to create something unique.

I'd like to give a special shout-out with my personal thanks to kieranmillar and bbb here on the forum, who put in a significant amount of effort, above and beyond, this past year to ensure the puzzle design is solid and engaging and the content taken as a whole is, well, flawlessly consistent. Thank you! :)

We've been putting TLP through a set of final validation steps in preparation for mass-printing these past few weeks. With any luck, validation should complete very soon and printing should begin this month. Then, after spending 2-3 more months on a boat, freshly-minted copies of TLP will arrive at our logistic hub locations for shipping out to backers and those who have pre-ordered.

I appreciate the faith in our team and the patience exhibited by all who've pledged or otherwise supported TLP along the way.

If you'd like to pre-order TLP at a $5 discount from retail, there's still time to do so here:

Twisty Little Passages has entered the Finals of Board Game Geeks' MOST ANTICIPATED BOARD GAMES OF 2020!

I encourage you to vote for TWISTY LITTLE PASSAGES in these two categories: Solitaire and Abstract

While being #1 is a laudable aspiration, the bar is at least to get into the top 20 in these categories to be recognized, which is totally doable with a few more votes.

Somehow I am not surprised there's an entire category of "Train".
