Friday Puzzles #121

Again, I can only apologise for the lateness of this post. Rest assured I’ll be in the country both on Thursday evening, and on Friday, so the next post will be on time.

This Heyawake is the the culmination of a few ideas I incoherently put together at quarter to one this morning. With a larger size, I reckon this could be developed into a more “complete” puzzle, but hopefully there are a couple of interesting quirks with this one. Enjoy!

    Heh, I enjoyed this. Every thirty seconds, I thought “Hey, that can’t possibly be unique… oh, I see…”.

    Seemed to be a one-trick puzzle, but a very good trick to remember when doing these.

    Thanks.

    Very nice. I really enjoyed solving it, although I am not a big fan of heyawake.
