The description of Back from the Klondike
BACK FROM THE KLONDIKE
Euler, the great mathematician, discovered a rule for solving all manner of maze puzzles, which, as all good puzzlist know, depends chiefly upon working backwards. This puzzle, however, was built purposely to defeat Euler's rule and out of many attempts is probably the only one which thwarts his method.
Back from the Klondike is one of Sam Loyd's most famous puzzles, first printed in the New York Journal and Advertiser on April 24, 1898. As a fan of the Sam Loyd's work, I created this modern adaptation of the Back from the Klondike original puzzle and proposed 100 different mazes to challenge your mind.
Starting from the center, go the indicated number of squares in a straight line in any one of the eight directions, north, south, east, west, northeast, northwest, southeast, or southwest. From this new point, march on again according to the number indicated, and continue on in this manner until you come upon to one of the goal squares located in the sides of the board.
If you solve the puzzle, reaching a goal square, you will receive one star, if you do it without any help ("Show Visited" and "Show Possibles" options deactivated) you will receive an extra star, if you arrive in the minimal solution steps you will receive another extra star.
