# Yajilin minicubes: the Poppycock, the Balderdash, the Gobbledygook

These are three-dimensional yajilin puzzles. In each puzzle, the four squares depict the layers of a $$4\times4\times4$$ cube.

• Shade some cells on each layer. The numbered cells show how many shaded cells (not including numbered cells) are in the direction of the arrow.
• Diagonal arrows point to squares on other layers. An up-left arrow ↖ points to smaller-numbered layers, and a down-right arrow ↘ points at higher-numbered layers. For example, a down-right arrow on layer 2 points to cells in the same row and same column on layers 3 and 4.
• Shaded cells cannot be adjacent to another shaded cell (even those on different levels). The shaded cells are allowed to touch the numbered cells, however.
• Unshaded unnumbered cells on each layer are all connected in 2D (i.e. each layer is treated separately).
• Make a single loop in 3D space which goes through every unshaded, unnumbered cell.

• darn it! this should have gotten much more votes! (the question I mean) Commented Aug 28, 2019 at 8:45

Here's #1 (to add to Omega Krypton's #3)

• Small problem on level #4, otherwise looks good.

• @jafe, Ah yes, my apologies, I must have hit 'undo' at the end as that was the last thing I did. Fixed now. Commented Aug 27, 2019 at 15:13
