Rules -- Ripple Play

Also known as Ripple Effect or Hakyuu Kouka.

1. Place a single positive integer in every empty cell.
2. Every region of the grid must contain consecutive numbers starting at 1, up through the number of cells in that region. (For instance, a 4-cell region must contain the numbers 1 through 4.)
3. Any two occurrences of the same number in one row or column must have at least that number of other cells between them. (For instance, two 2's in the same row or column must have at least two other cells between them.)

I think rule 3 is ambiguous: "between the two occurrences" makes it sound as though two is the maximum number of occurrences allowed. That said, I can see from the solution that more than two occurrences per row are allowed.

Probably can be fixed if you change it to "between two consecutive occurrences"

Should be cleared up now. :)
