Puzzle No. 521: Cross The Streams

Edit: I posted the wrong version. Apologies. Corrected now.

Yay, a big puzzle!

Rules: Shade some empty cells black to create a single group of black cells that are all connected to each other through their edges. No 2×2 cell area within the grid contains all black cells. Numbers to the left/top of the grid represent the groups of consecutive black cells which are in that row/column in order, either from left to right or from top to bottom. For example, a clue of “3” means the row or column has three consecutive black cells, and a clue of “3 1” means that the row or column has a group of three consecutive black cells followed by a single black cell, separated by at least one white cell. A question mark (?) represents a group of consecutive black cells whose size is unknown; an asterisk (*) represents any number of unknown groups of black cells, including none at all.

Enjoy!

  1. Managed to complete finally. Noticed that at occasions whenever stuck, there was one single clue which really helped in continuing. Excellent puzzle !
