Had to make a lot of guesses in that one. I completed the bottom third using logic but the top had to be started with guess work. Is there a logical route?

I think I had to use temporary colors in this one: I started the 5 in columns 1 at the top and entered the consequences. I ran into a contradiction. So I moved this 5 down more and more. When I didn't have a contradiction anymore I had a valid shaded sqare... but I missed the "one line logic", too.

The bottom half is straightforward. I cracked the top half starting from the right end, just above the midpoint. Looking at the tops of the five rightmost columns ('4,5,6,6,6'). You should be able to see how they won't fit in certain rows, because they'll cause a row with an 11 to get "cut off".

  • A yellow/light blue highlight in the time distribution charts highlights your time, where relevant.
  • Rating scores out of 10.0 show the average difficulty rating chosen by users, where 1.0 is "Easy" and 10.0 is "Hard".
  • If a puzzle is opened more than once, including by loading from a saved position, then this is potentially a significant aid so it is listed as being completed with 'multiple sessions' for the purpose of the best time/average rating displays above.
  • Minor aid is defined as no more than one use of 'Check solution' when incomplete and/or no more than one use of 'Check solution' when wrong; and/or using highlighting aids (show repeated digits, show broken inequalities and show valid/invalid placements [slitherlink] only). Major aid is any and all other use of the solving aids except for 'show wrong'.
