However, having seen a link to a contest to publish a completely original puzzle, I have been having a think. In the works I’ve got something that manages to combine elements of Slitherlink with that of Nurikabe. More to come on that in the next few weeks.
Back to the here and now though, here’s a Masyu puzzle. I unsuccessfully tried to force in some global thinking into this puzzle; trying to nail down uniqueness invariably seemed to simplify things a little bit too much. Still, I’ve thrown in a little tributary “best of” Masyu tricks that I’ve seen on nikoli.com fairly recently. If you’ve seen these before, it’ll be possible to whizz through this in under a minute – 45s on paper from me to beat – if not there’ll be a couple of things you’ll need to think about.
