Puzzle 12: Total Yajilin

with 7 comments

This is a Yajilin puzzle with a small twist. Each clue number is now equal the total number of black squares in the same row and column as that clue number (this means I don’t have to draw any arrows, yay!).

Notes: This is pretty much MellowMelon’s Indirect Yajilin, but I figured that it wouldn’t exactly be accurate to call this puzzle Indirect when it only uses clues of this one type. And, of course, putting grey plus signs in the cells would be a very difficult task for me.

Also, on a more personal note, I haven’t constructed anything in the past month mainly because of college apps. However, I submitted my early action applications to MIT and Caltech yesterday, which means more time for puzzles! 😀 Though I suppose it would be a good idea to force myself to construct at a rate of two puzzles per week or something so there aren’t any huge time gaps between postings.

Puzzle 8: Yajilin

with 3 comments

This is a Yajilin puzzle.

Notes: Arrows were lovingly handcrafted with GIMP because macs don’t have paint. >.>

Pretty easy, and almost, but not quite, symmetric!
