In this topic I will share my list of the inspirational puzzle collections that I discovered when looking for puzzles for my puzzles thread.
With inspirational puzzles I mean puzzles that mentally stimulate you to solve them and enjoy them so much that irresistibly you will be drawn to the next puzzle of the collection.
For every collection I will give some additional info:
- name of collection (link)
- what level?
B = beginners (~25-20 k), I = intermediate (~20-10 k), A= advanced (~10-1 k), D = dan (~1-9 d)
- number of puzzles (NoP)
When I find new puzzle collections that are in my honest opinion inspirational I will add them. So work in progress. More to follow.

(* (at) instead of @ because there is a maximum of 10 persons you can @ in a post.)
Note that there are not many collections for beginners listed here. If you search for “begin” or “elementary” you will find plenty of them. I advise to do Cho Chikun’s Elementary series. That will keep you busy for a while.
12 kyu is a default value in the puzzle program, meaning that the author didn’t assign a certain kyu level to a problem / collection.
In the winter of 2020/21 I put a lot of puzzles on OGS Puzzles.
Some of those collections are truly inspirational. Examples of classical go style that show elegance and subtlety.
Enjoy, but be careful …
