  1. Indeed. Disjoint Groups Tapa should be made more popular. I’d be interested to see what a harder one might solve like; or even if the regions were irregular.

    • I was wondering about irregular regions too. I might try that in future, and of course anyone else reading this is welcome to as well. This one was difficult to make any harder as I wanted it to be just these 9 4×4 squares, so even having 2 clues per region meant a lot of restriction.
