After completing Aqua, I would say Blue is a snap. There are a few tighter areas, but once I figured out where the traps were I pretty much had it whipped. The biggest problem for me was that I hammered away on it non-stop until I had it open, I was loosing dexterity in my fingers, Blue requires more dexterity than Aqua.

Good to know. I'll take it easy on my fingers when I'm working on blue, then.

I had just finished my blue yesterday as well. I thought it was quite a bit harder than Aqua, personally. I probably spent 7-10 hrs on blue. I didn't keep track very well because it was spaced out so much over time.

Oops! I didn't want to come off as cocky, Blue is definitely a harder puzzle than Aqua. It's just that with what I learned from Aqua, it made Blue infinitely easier. Starting both from scratch though, Blue is definitely harder. I'm really looking forward to getting into Green. Hopefully I can get a new one before they are discontinued. If not, then Bronze, here I come.

Okay did anyone else encounter a trap that didn't entirely feel like a trap because it was more like a set of stairs where if you go "down" you eventually can't move and have to go back but if you go "up" you'll then immediately encounter another "real" trap and have to start over? Am I going in the right direction? Right now I keep hitting traps no matter where I turn in the maze. :(

Ok, so this is my first post here, but I am happy to say I have finally opened Aqua.
I'm just waiting to be added to the open group.

In the mean time, can anyone tell me which way the pins go back in - Can't seem to find it anywhere :roll:

I'm looking forward to opening blue next.
