Friday Puzzles #168

So this link is only going to look vaguely impressive until the 10th of August, after which you'll have to scroll down to number 141, but I'm quite proud of this one, despite "only" finishing 3rd behind a couple of Japanese solvers with championships already to their name earlier in 2012.  Hurrah!

So a fairly easy choice of puzzle type this week.  I've only gone and spoiled you with a slightly larger puzzle.  Was tempted to try something with twisted symmetry, but any sort of symmetry went out the window when the main motif I wanted was 8 cells high and 17 wide.  It's making for quite a nice theme for the next week or two though.  Enjoy!

  1. Very nice one. For some reason I felt very satisfied after solving this and also it was not hard(considering my average solving skills).


  2. Yeah, I was thinking hard was a little optimistic the day after, I was in a tired state late on Thursday when Putting this together

  3. Big congratulations on winning Nikoli 141. After just doing that myself now (muuuch slower than you) a mere 17x17 seems positively easy!
