Friday Puzzles #173
So the nice thing with slitherlink puzzles is that there always seems to be a way to accommodate new ideas. The not so nice nice thing is that trying to make a moderately difficult puzzle throws up lots of uniqueness issues. Getting round those can be a pain in the arse, and this isn't quite as full blooded as I'd intended, but I think this probably just about deserves its label of hard rather than medium... but only if you resist the temptation to guess or (ab)use uniqueness, it's only a small grid. Enjoy!
