# Solve the following 6x6 grid

There is a 6x6 grid. Each row/column has A, B, C and D exactly once, and two blanks. Each cell may have upto one letter only. A blank is not a letter.

Hints

• The left-most letter of row 2 is A and right-most is B
• The left-most letter of row 3 is also A
• The right-most letter of row 4 is B
• The left-most letters of row 5 and 6 are both B
• The first letter of the first column is D
• The first letter in columns 2 and 3 is A
• Column 2 ends with D (or 1/2 spaces after a D)
• For column 4 and 6, the first letter is B and last is C

There exists a unique solution; I have twice-verified.

• Don't the first two conditions put the letter A in column 1 twice? (And the same with B in 2, 4, 5, and 6?)

• @Emrakul I think he meant it as "First letter of row..." Commented Mar 2, 2015 at 10:46
• @Novarg Hmm... if A is the first letter in two rows, it seems like it'd still violate the rules of the puzzle.

• @Emrakul by saying "First letter of row" I meant that there are no other letters before that, but there can be a blank Commented Mar 2, 2015 at 10:56
• @Novarg Ahh, I see. That makes sense, thanks!

Oh well, this puzzle was something else. Innovative indeed and mind-boggling! Thanks!

• Thanks, I didn't know those existed. +1 Still I'd let the 'innovative' word live in my answer, assuming the OP created it. :) Commented Mar 2, 2015 at 14:10
• @IvoBeckers Oh, ok. I had seen found one in a book, so I tweaked it a bit and posted it. Thanks for letting me know that others make them as well. Commented Mar 2, 2015 at 18:57
