Friday Puzzles #142

I’ve not done a decent Nurikabe for a while, dearest reader, and nor have I used my favourite Nurikabe pentomino for a while!

In some Terribly Exciting News, this blog also has a nice new presence on facebook. Have a look here, and if you like, sign up for some facebook based prompts. If nothing else, it should inform you more reliably than RSS when I make an actual update as opposed to a place-holder.

So yes, onto the puzzle. Fairly steady progress, but watch your step. Bit of trivia, remove the 4 and 5 clues from the bottom left, stick in a 6 where it ought to go, and you end up with a similar – although I suppose ultimately easier – puzzle. Enjoy!

#173 Nurikabe – rated medium
