Monday Mutant 47: Fencing Match (all 3's)

In this Fencing Match puzzle, a 3 has been placed in every cell which could legally contain one. The number of edges of an empty cell which are part of the loop must not be 3. The rules are otherwise unchanged.
With apologies to MellowMelon (AKA Palmer Mebane).

In unrelated news, Sudoku Xtra issue 11 is out! It contains five of my puzzles, including 3 Battleships puzzles and a mutant Seek and Spell! It also contains two enjoyable Heyawake puzzles created by Gareth Moore himself, so even if you absolutely hate my puzzles, maybe you'll still enjoy something in there.

Heh...unfortunate pattern there, Grant.

I'm not offended. Just amused. :)

Yeah, 7's and C's are soooooo risque. :P

Hey, I'm just saying I noticed the puzzle during my planning period, made the above comment, and then when my students came in for Period 2, I plugged my computer in to the projector to show them something. Your puzzle came up on the screen because I hadn't minimized it, and within 5 seconds someone asked "Is that a swastika?!?!"

So, thanks for getting me in trouble!!! :)

This wouldn't be the first time that someone has pointed out that the arrangement of the givens in a puzzle I made looks suspiciously like a swastika. Maybe I'm a closet Nazi and don't know it yet. . . !
