This puzzle is a quick and fun little Nurikabe that is very tall, because I am not. It's not particularly tough, but if you need a nice relaxing grid-deduction puzzle to calm your brain today, this should provide a good flow. I hope you enjoy!
Rules of a Nurikabe (paraphrased from here):
This is a Nurikabe puzzle. The goal is to paint some cells black so that the resulting grid satisfies the rules of Nurikabe:
- Numbered cells are white. (Think of them as "islands.")
- White cells are divided into regions, all of which contain exactly one number. The number indicates how many white cells there are in that region.
- Regions of white cells cannot be adjacent to one another, but they can touch at a corner.
- Black cells must all be orthogonally connected. (Think of them as "oceans.")
- There are no groups of black "ocean" cells that form a 2×2 square anywhere in the grid.
