Updated versions of all collections including this week's free puzzles have just been uploaded to eSnips.

Several pdf and jpg sets have been converted to the PicPuz format.

Happy solving!

I would like to know how to get big black and white PAPs in Argentina.Is there any other web page where I can print them from, in the same way as the free weekly puzzles from conceptis? Thank you.

izakkay -> RE: New puzzle collections (4/16/2007 3:20:44 PM)

I have a lot of these puzzles in my puzzle folder.

Look in the Conceptis Pic-a-Pix file or the Nonogram files.

Anything with a size specified and not preceded with a C is B & W.

Happy solving

Thank you very much! I have just started printing some of them.

izakkay -> RE: New puzzle collections (4/27/2007 5:43:25 PM)

I have just added a newly updated Conceptis - Pic-aPix file to my folder.

It is broken down by Conceptis's pdf format and the PicPuz format with the puzzles and solutions in separate files for both formats.

At this point there are well over 2,000 puzzles in the collection.

There are a total of five color PAP's without PicPuz solutions which have been kept separately. It would be appreciated if anyone who does have the PicPuz solutions to any of them could email them to me at so that they can be added and shared with the public.

Please note that due to the large file size of this collection I have not included any pdf versions of the PicPuz format. It should not be necessary since anyone having the PicPuz software can generate the pdf files on their own. I have however included Conceptis's pdf versions wherever available for those who prefer doing everythig on paper without using Picpuz.

Since they have all been converted by either Leena or myself to the PicPuz format I have removed all the large image files of these puzzles. This has resulted in the total size of this file coming down from the 70 or so gigabyte file to just over 10 gigabytes, a file size much easier to work with.

Please check my text file for the cross-reference file that shows all the Conceptis puzzle number for each puzzle coming from a magazine or other publication. By doing it in this fashion I have been able to eliminate most duplicates among puzzles published in different magazines. This file is also updated on a regular basis to reflect the magazines newly converted by Leena or myself. At a later date I shall be adding a separate text file listing just the magazine issues and other publications that are included in this collection.

My next update will include all Conceptis's B & W puzzles with names rather than numbers that I have been able to track down. This should be followed by the colored ones.

Leena, Cyclone, Tina and Rosa have to be thanked for providing a substantial majority of these puzzles.

I still have numerous magazines which I shall be converting and adding as time will allow.

Anybody with any additional puzzles they would like to share should email them to me and I will add them in future updates.

I hope you all enjoy the way I have organized this superb collection and am open to suggestions from any of you as to how to improve on it.

Wishing you all a good weekend and Happy Solving

Happy solving

I have just uploaded to esnips a new Nonograms - 1 file which includes many new conversions to PicPuz.

Pleae note anyone interested in just the new additions and revisions should sort the individual files within the zip file descending by date modified and then select all files from today's date through the date of your last download.

Happy solving


rcubero -> RE: New puzzle collections (5/2/2007 5:34:18 PM)

Please Isaac, how do you convert pic puz in pdf?
Thanks a lot

izakkay -> RE: New puzzle collections (5/2/2007 6:57:07 PM)

Hi Rosa,

I have never done it myself but Leena does it all the time. I believe that you capture the full screen image with a screen shot program and then save it to a pdf creator like Acrobat.

Happy solving


izakkay -> RE: New puzzle collections (5/2/2007 7:36:46 PM)

By the way I forgot to mention that I myself also prefer solving the puzzles on paper but I never bother creating .pdf files. I simply use the print option in File on the top left in PicPuz itself. By clicking on the preferences button and then selecting the Paper tab one cane change it from Portrait (which is the default, to Landscape.

I hope this is of help to you Rosa.

rcubero -> RE: New puzzle collections (5/2/2007 10:47:45 PM)

Thanks Isaac. I'll try your solution.

izakkay -> RE: New puzzle collections (5/3/2007 12:45:26 AM)

Hi solvers,

Since I will not be home till Sunday I have just uploaded to esnips a new Text Files file and the first 3 parts of the Nonograms collection.

Have a good weekend and happy solving


Cyclone -> RE: New puzzle collections (5/4/2007 7:44:39 AM)

You can only save to PDF if you have the full Acrobat. I can print a file to PDF anytime for instance. [:)]


lekahe -> RE: New puzzle collections (5/4/2007 8:12:42 AM)

Correction Cyclone, I don't have full acrobat, but I can print any file in Acrobat. There are several different programs for that, but I use PrimoPDF. It's free.


Cyclone -> RE: New puzzle collections (5/4/2007 7:37:05 PM)

Okie, if you look for non-Acrobat programs, sure. But with Acrobat doing it, it has to be full versions. I didn't factor in other software.


rcubero -> RE: New puzzle collections (5/5/2007 12:07:45 AM)

Thanks to all of you.

izakkay -> RE: New puzzle collections (5/6/2007 7:54:26 AM)

Hi Rosa,

I am curious as to whether you tried what I suggested and whether it worked for you.


rcubero -> RE: New puzzle collections (5/6/2007 6:38:44 PM)

Isaac. I've discovered now that my home printer is wrong so I have to wait to know if I can use your solution.
I'll tell you as soon as possible.

izakkay -> RE: New puzzle collections (5/6/2007 10:52:18 PM)

A newly updated Nonograms 2 file has just been uploaded to esnips. The puzzles in the new book Paint-Doku have been added with their solutions. The puzzle numbers in the two original books, Perplexing Pixel Puzzles and Mind-sharpening Pixel Puzzles, have been cross-referenced to the Paint-Doku puzzle numbers and added to the cross-reference text file.

Happy solving
