  • There are only 8 numbers, 1-8

1 Answer 1


Repeatedly iterating over the boxes (regions?) gave me:

Then, doing the same over the columns gave me:

All in all, this was a great puzzle! The gaps in the board made it a little tricky to keep track of how some numbers blocked certain spaces, but it was still very enjoyable. Looking forward to more of the series! :) This was a pretty straightforward solve, but if more reasoning or steps are needed, I can try to run through exactly what I did.

    $\begingroup$ Good job again! Again, this wasn't a particularly hard one, just more a bit of fun. Off the top of my head, 6, 8 and 10 are the 'harder' ones, with 8 and 10 much more so than the others, but some of the others might also be a little tricky. (Also, if you click on the picture it will take you to a a copy of the puzzle with none of the background, so you wont have to screenshot) Good solve! $\endgroup$ Jan 12, 2021 at 19:48
