To progress to the advanced levels, you'll have to learn to think quickly so possible solutions [links] can be tested and rejected in an efficient and flexible manner. I hereby issue a challenge to our puzzle-masters and regular visitors to finish level 8! If you can manage this feat, send me a screen shot and will put your name up here! ----------- UPDATE: Well folks, I am speechless. After not seeing anyone finish the game, Rahul and I talked about modifying the difficulty to make levels 6,7,8 easier. UPDATE 1/2013: OK, wasn't going to add more names, but lots of people are still coming by to play Magic Links, and Zeynep AKSOY from Turkey is 9 years old and has completed the game, as has Mary Rosenfeld- 71 years of age!
