### Balance Quest

Update 1/10/14:

Stephen, thanks for your very positive comment. I have quoted you below:

“Balance Quest has a fairly prominent position on our “Puzzles” page on that site, a larger number of LP users are clicking over to try BQ. (LP.org is now our biggest traffic source for BQ.)”

By the way, your redesigned site, logic-puzzles.org is beautiful and now has a wide selection of logic puzzles for those interested in playing.

Balance Quest is kind of like a jigsaw puzzle played with numbers. Complete with grid with numbers so that each cell value is equal to the * sum* of its adjacent cells, without repeating the same number twice in either the white or the grey sections.

Rules:

- Use simple addition to complete the grid (e.g. Top left 11 + ? = 26, center (58 + -5 + ? + ? = 0, etc.)
- Leave no duplicate numbers in the white cells or in the grey cells.
- Use every unique number from -16 to 16, except zero, in the grey cells.

There is one unique solution to every puzzle.
