Firstly, I’m the highest ranked Indian performer in the Tapa Variations Contest IX that just got over (refer to the Puzzle No. 41 post for details.) and I’m quite pleased with myself for it 😛 Congrats to motris(Thomas Snyder) for taking a big early lead this year.
You can view the scores here .
Secondly, for today’s puzzle, I was tempted to follow Heyawake rules too, but decided on just the Yajilin variation instead of a Hybrid as I felt it would get too crowded up, but if people feel differently I’ll definitely try it out later.
Now to the puzzle.
Follow the rules of Yajilin. Instead of the usual arrow-clue-type, the numbers in the top left of the region give how many shaded cells there are in that region.
Rated : Medium, but of course its something slightly new so I’m not sure.
