I finally finished this puzzle today!! Only took me nearly two weeks......... every so often I'd have another look at it, and occasionally spot something I hadn't seen before. I had to use some interesting logic in places, working out which lines had to join to each other, even if I didn't know exactly how they would, to help solve it - especially in that last tricky bit below the top right corner!

Two days until a new Beast arrives...

I just finally finished all the availble beasts last night, and man i feel proud!
my tip is to keep trying, and keep trying but if you get really really really stuck, start again on a new sheet and see if you see anything new the second time around
Cant wait for the next beast!

Not one new Beast today - but 3! July's has gone live, and I've gone back and added ones for January & February from this year.

I worked through July this morning - there were quite a few spots where I had to think pretty carefully, but it was a fair bit easier to complete than March and April's were.

I got exited about them and I did a lot of them but then I ran out of forced moves and I'm not so exited any more. Now I have this pile of unfinished beasts and I look at one or two every now and then hoping I can see something I didn't see before.

Hey brits and English fans: tough luck with Portugal! By the way what's up with Rooney?

He's an angry young man.  It was bound to happen, to be honest. 

Mind you, some of the acting on the Portuguese side - gold statuettes all round there...

How do you get the Beast in Loopy app format transferred to Loopy?  I saved as a text file, but Loopy says it doesn't recognize the format and won't load it.  Thanks.

Highlight and copy the string of characters and manually paste it into the Game ID accessed via File>Specific in Loopy.  Loading is used for games saved in Loopy, not for the puzzle input strings
