    $\begingroup$ I like the doors! Great look :) How about putting them in a random order, like on a real Advent calendar?? (And, of course, this being Puzzling, maybe we should use a magic square - albeit with no 25: a central blank?) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Stiv Done, I put them in code blocks to make the blank work, which also makes them a bit wider, but it has the nice side effect of showing which puzzles are already available $\endgroup$ Commented Dec 1, 2023 at 18:57
