Nurikabe (taken from Nikoli)

  • Fill in the cells with black under the following rules.
  • You cannot fill in cells containing numbers.
  • A number tells the number of continuous (adjacently) white cells. Each area of white cells contains exactly one number in it and they are separated by black cells.
  • The black cells are linked to be a continuous (adjacently) wall.
  • Black cells cannot be linked to be 2x2 square or larger.
