Monday Mutant 66: Polyominous (nonconsecutive)

In this Polyominous puzzle, no two horizontally or vertically adjacent cells may contain two consecutive numbers. The rules are otherwise unchanged.
MellowMelon experimented with these rules a while back; here's my take.

On a completely unrelated note, check out this mind-blowingly fast Rubik's Cube video!

Presumably, by "a while back" you actually mean earlier today. Both were quite fun anyway.

term: No, I mean last February; this puzzle was written several weeks ago, and I didn't know that MellowMelon would post another such puzzle eight hours before mine was scheduled to be posted. :)

Don't you hate it when that happens. Anyway great puzzle, love the logic.

Nice; the end brought back memories of that puzzle I posted a year ago, what with the block of 12 cells at the end adjacent to an 11. The resolution was simpler though.

This was a really good puzzle, this variation is definitely an interesting one. A thought I had while solving it was that the nonconsecutive constraint could make the even-odd constraint interesting, maybe that would be worth checking into?

zyzzyva: That might actually be a good idea to consider.
