Puzzle 11 - Semitransparent Snake: Does “every fourth cell” mean that in every sequence the fourth cell is invisible or that in every sequence every fourth cell is invisible, so including the eighth cell etc.?

Puzzle 23/24: Does “first 2 resp. 3 numbers” mean that one is 3 and the other is 2, that left is 3 and right is 2 or that every sum can be either?

Puzzle 11: Every fourth cell means 4th, 8th, 12th etc.
Puzzle 23/24: There will be clear individual rules for each puzzle in the puzzle booklet. For 23 it is sum of 2 in rows, product of 3 in columns. For 24 it is sum of 3 in rows, product of 2 in columns.

Puzzle 26: Japanese Arrows

The solution seems to be wrong: The 2 in R4C2 points at a single digit to the left, hence should be a 1.

You are right, the arrows in R4C2 and also in R3C3 are wrong. We will fix it.

Puzzle 14: Nonconsecutive Hitori

Just to confirm that the usual Hitori rule is deliberately missing. So the example would also be correct e.g. with a 6 instead of a 5 in the bottom right corner?

Puzzle 6: First seen snake

The example seems to have multiple solutions. E.g. I have a solution that starts in R1C2 going left, then down, right, up to connect with the given solution in R2C4. May well be missing something though.

Puzzle 9: Snail odd even.Rule says "Enter numbers 1- 3 in the grid....." is it the rule? or this is only valid for the example and the larger puzzle will have more numbers?
