I'm seeing several possible configurations in the lower left corner. But knowing your expert puzzle-making skills, I'm sure I'm missing something.

I've got everything solved except the first 5 cells in row 14 which appears to have multiple solutions.

Nevermind, I missed a connection between the top and bottom islands. Mea culpa.

This was fun. This is definitely a puzzle type that should be done more often. On that note, I hope you come up with a 17x17 Yajisan-Kazusan.

zyzzyva: Not likely; to my knowledge, Nikoli has never published a 17x17 Yajisan-Kazusan. In the main "puzzles" series, I try to stick to Nikoli's standards to such an extent that I only publish puzzles they do, in grid sizes that they do. That's just how I like to roll, for some reason. :)

So what sizes of Yajisan-Kazusan are available for you to use?

Grant Fikes said...

zyzzyva: I have never seen Nikoli publish Yajisan-Kazusan in any size besides 10x10.
