Daily Calendar Puzzle is a really fun puzzle calendar, which is solved, for a day, by covering all the squares except the squares for the day. For example, if you want to solve the puzzle for January 26, You need to find a combination of the blocks that cover every numbered square from 1-31, and every month square from Jan-Dec, except the number 26, and the month Jan. Sounds fun, right?
One thing to note is a day might have multiple solutions. Also, many solutions can also solve other days just by switching a simple piece or combination. If you’re really stuck on a day, we have solutions for the month of January!
The dark-coloured pieces are fixed for every solution. The light-coloured pieces can be moved to solve any other day in the group. As mentioned earlier, a day can be solved by multiple groups so feel free to explore! We have just made the solutions a bit easier!
1st Jan (also solves 2nd, 3rd, 13th, 14th, 20th, 21th, 27th, 28th)
Use the picture on the left to solve 1st Jan, and solve 3rd Jan by just flipping one piece. Use the picture on the right to solve 2nd Jan. 13th and 14th Jan can be solved by switching combinations in the picture on the right. 20th, 21st, 27th, and 28th Jan can be solved by switching the top left light-coloured piece with the bottom right light-coloured piece.
4th Jan (also solves 5th, 6th, 7th, 11th, 14th, 18th, 21st, 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th)
The combination on the left, just by rotating the whole light-colored set, solves all the corner dates, which include the 4th, 7th, 25th, and 28th Jan. The combination on the right solves all the edges by rotating in different ways. The edges include the dates 5th, 6th, 11th, 14th, 18th, 21st, 26th and 27th Jan.
8th Jan (also solves 9th, 23rd, 30th)
The rectangular block and the C-shaped block can be interchanged and flipped to give 4 solutions in total, which include the 8th, 9th, 23rd and 30th Jan.
10th Jan (also solves 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 9th, 11th, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 29th, 30th, 31st)
The light-coloured blocks on the left image can be interchanged and flipped in different ways to solve all the corner dates marked. These include 22nd, 24th, 29th, and 31st Jan. And after interchanging it can solve the 2nd, 4th, 9th, and 11th Jan. Using the C-shaped block on the right, which can be flipped and interchanged with the rectangle block to solve the 4 edge dates marked. These include 3rd, 10th, 23rd and 30th Jan.
12th Jan (also solves 13th, 15th, 16th)
A simple C-shaped block flip and interchange can solve the 4 edges marked in the image. These include 12th, 13th, 15th and 16th Jan.
19th Jan (also solves 3rd, 4th, 9th, 16th, 19th, 24th, 25th)
Simply rotating the light-coloured set of blocks gives the solution to 8 days. 3rd, 4th, 9th, 12th, 16th, 19th, 24th and 25th Jan. These days are marked.
17th Jan (also solves 10th, 20th, 21st)
Interchanging and rotating the rectangular block and C-shaped block solves the 4 dates on the edge. These dates include 10th, 17th, 20th and 21st Jan.
22nd Jan (also solves 5th, 6th, 23rd, 24th, 29th, 30th, 31st)
The combination on the left, with just flipping and interchanging solves the days marked, 5th, 6th, 22nd, 24th, 29th, and 31st Jan. The solution on the right solves the 23rd and 30th Jan by flipping the C-shaped block.
These solutions can be used just as a simple guide. It’s recommended to try the puzzle out yourself without any help because trust me, it’s more fun that way! Best of luck!
