Friday Puzzles #62

It’s been a while since I’ve done a nurikabe puzzle, although I seem to recall that I always seem to have a bit of a moan about how my nurikabe aren’t quite up to the highest standards. This, as opposed to something like my Masyu puzzles which I believe are as good as anything bar juno. It’s a similar story here – this puzzle has quite a nice “solving flow” to it, but it’s not quite as polished as I think it could be – which is not to say I didn’t give it my best shot! Nevertheless, I think this is a pretty nice idea, and will certainly have you scratching your head for at least a moment.

Interestingly, I’ve seen my traffic drop off a little bit in the last couple of weeks, which coincides with the end of the Warwick term. I’ll be keeping going throughout this summer period, but for now, enjoy!
