Impossibly Hard: someone, Carl H. (Carl has also done some great analysis, please read in the comment section below), Suineg, and Jerrud Edwin
‘someone’ is the 1st to solve all 3. He emailed and let me know he is a 17 year old high school senior who’s also taking courses at a local college in Computer Organization and Architecture. Interestingly, he was home-schooled until 7th grade. His parents tell him that he taught himself math before he could read or write. He is considered the top math student at his high school, and has participated in numerous math contests.
Here’s a really neat (and hard!) new puzzle game made for Smartkit by Peter Grabarchuk. There are actually 3 challenges, and all are quite tough. We’ve got a Smartkit T-shirt and Puzzle Express 3 book (courtesy of Peter) to the first person who solves all 3 puzzles (send us a screen shot firstname.lastname@example.org). However, we’ll also keep and publish a list of all the uber-brains who manage to solve these.
Interestingly, all the Grabarchuk’s are into puzzles. Peter’s dad runs Ageofpuzzles.com, and Peter’s brother, Serhiy, Jr., has his website at UniPuzzle.com
