Here's a puzzle type I call Pandiagonal Magic Takuzu. It's inspired by @Stiv's series "This new puzzle type needs a name", except you get the name up front. Can you solve it?
The title means:
The first puzzle:
There are 16 3×3 blocks which are numbered 1 to 16. Rearrange them to form a pandiagonal magic square. However, the bold ones(7, 9 and 13) are fixed and cannot be moved.
There are two such arrangements:
The second puzzle:
The first solution is not a valid Takuzu puzzle, because it has four consecutive white cells on the second row. The second one has a unique solution:
$\begingroup$ Nice work! +1 Perhaps you could explain more explicitly that in the first step you have rearranged the 3x3 blocks based on their central numbers, as per the magic square - as it took a little while for me to suss what was going on while reading through? Thanks :) $\endgroup$– StivMar 2, 2020 at 10:18
