Is there a way to do the 31 introductory puzzles out of order? Whenever I click a puzzle that is not next, nothing happens. On Chat, users have told me they can jump around.

And for some reason I don't understand, I can do the first Design puzzle, even though I haven't completed all the preceding puzzles. What's happening here? (I'm using a Mac with Yosemite, but not El Capitan.)

My students are wondering about this, too.

Thanks in advance.

It looks to me like you must

It looks to me like you must do the introductory puzzles in order, at least the first time. The intro puzzles teach you the interface tools in a logical order, starting from the most basic. I don't think it would be advisable to do them out of order.

But once you have "won" an intro puzzle you may go back and do it again any time you like. That is why advanced players can jump around. But the first time thru you must do them in order.

You can skip the intro puzzles altogether, and jump right to the competition puzzles. That is what you did when you jumped into a design puzzle. However, without all the intro puzzles, and hence w/o all the tools, are you really prepared for competition?

Thank you

Thanks for your response. I still don't understand how I was able to see some puzzles out of sequence, but I suppose some things are not meant to be understood.
