After the solve, I’d much appreciate any feedback regarding
a. Obviously, whether this was a fun solve.
(Assuming a is yes, go on)
b. Whether it’d be better off to color the ones in the Tapa wall say black at the start itself rather than leaving the solver to determine which is which(pros and cons either way).
c. Assuming you actually took time for a and b, I really need help here – A better name for this variation!
Rules – ALL classic Tapa rules apply, except that even the clue cells can(not a necessity) be part of the Tapa wall. e.g. a “5” clue can make a “X” shaped pentomino across the 9 cells it is in the middle of, but not a “P” shaped one. So as you can make out, the clues are now for all 9 cells instead of just the 8 around. Any doubts/suggestions welcome.
Rated : Hard, simply due to unfamiliarity.
