Puzzle 15: Shortest Segment Tapa
Rules, from the Tapa Variations Contest X booklet: “Follow regular Tapa rules. Additionally, clues outside the grid indicate the length of the shortest blackened block lying towards that direction.”
EDIT: As pointed out by Bram, the recently released errata on the LMI site means that this puzzle has different rules from the one on the test. For this puzzle, if a number appears on the side, then at least one segment of that length must appear in that row or column.
Notes: I’ll probably make some more tapa variations by Saturday. Don’t forget about this if you want practice for braille tapa!
I’ve also pretty much given up on sticking to any sort of puzzle creation schedule. Maybe I just need more motivation, though, so I will now be taking puzzle requests :P: if anyone wants me to try creating any kind of puzzle, say so in the comments and I’ll get to it.
