Our Starter Pack series is a great way to get into new puzzle genres with easy to medium difficulty puzzles that can help teach any solver some new tricks. Our fifth volume features Star Battle (sometimes called Two Not Touch in other places), an object placement puzzle style where the solver must place an equal number of stars in each row, column, and region without any stars sitting in adjacent cells. A lot of the interesting logic comes from the interaction of different region shapes, and this collection of 36 puzzles by JinHoo Ahn showcases the best of Star Battle with hand-crafted themes and an abundance of style.
