Friday Puzzles #33
What’s this!? A Friday Puzzle with out a ton of baggage being thrown out of the pram? And didn’t I promise you some more sudoku puzzles in preparation for the 2nd round of the UK’s online WSC qualifier? Well I did round 1 in an unspectacular time, and was informed the much bigger second round has to be done by Sunday. I can’t be arsed to churn out an entire two hours test worth of sudoku in a week. I should probably get on that soon, because I’ve just realised there’s potentially a fairly easy way to sabotage the efforts of someone you don’t like much.
Besides, you are probably bored of sudoku now anyway? I don’t blame you. Here’s a pretty hard Nurikabe instead. I should probably warn you at this stage that in trying to focus on the visual clock-face aspect of the puzzle, the quality of the solve began to suffer. Not that it’s not bad or anything, but it definitely falls short of perfection. Errr…I mean, enjoy!
