Part 6 : Marina

Regarding boats turning. In the BR example, it says the grey ship can exit. Surely it requires a clear 4x4 area to do so, that doesn't overlap the rectangles of the 2 large ships.
If this is indeed valid, can you please clarify the turning rule please? Thanks.

[quote="PuzzleScot"]Part 6 : Marina

Sure, the gray boat needs a 4x4 square not occupied by other ships - not any ships, just other ships. So there's a lot of room for it to turn in this example. It can turn right on the spot where it's standing, then move sideways down and exit between the two large ships. Or it can go down 5 or 6 cells, then turn there and exit.
But the white ship needs a 5x5 square and it doesn't have that much space so it cannot turn and exit.

Ah yes, I see that now. My fault was in using logic.
In the real world, a rectangular object length n cannot turn within an nxn square without crossing the boundary, but in the puzzle, it can.
Also in the real world, so long as bows don't touch there isn't a problem, but in the puzzle there is!

Some errata that we've spotted so far in round 2:
- #3 (Octopus) 2nd row from bottom is wrong (clue or answer)
- #10 (Number Tree) There is a 2nd solution (top row = 2/1/4)
- #18 (New Age) Has multiple solutions
- #20 (Black 21) Is there an orthogonal/diagonal no-touch rule?

Finally, what happens in rounds 1 and 8, by the way? Not even a clue for us?

thanks for the comments, Alan.
the painted numbers in Black 21 cannot touch, not even diagonally.
the errata will be corrected. :)

Hello,

One mistake spotted in round 5 : on puzzle #1, the L pentomino has been mirrored in the solution, although the rules say that this is forbidden.

Ok, thanks, Bastien.
The rules are correct and the example will be changed.

A question about part 9 - Metropolis, puzzles 5 (Sydney) and 7 (Sao Paulo): is it possible to know the dimensions of the grids?
