a) Can black cells share an edge?
b) If clue is missing - does this mean no letter between black cells or just a missing clue?


This is the sentence from the instructions:
Clues outside the grid indicate all the letters between two black cells in the corresponding row or column in the correct order.

So please note that all the letters are listed outside the grid. If there is no letter outside, the black cells share an edge.


Or there could be just an empty cell between the black cells, as in the second row of the example.

Oh, great point. Sorry for that. Yes, empty cells are also allowed in this situation.

Puzzle 1, Countries:
Can there be a country without a given letter? If yes, how can we know its name (=letter)? ;)

Every country must contain at least one of given letters.

17. CAPSULES
The following rule seems to be missing:
No letter (number) is repeated in any outlined area.

Is the size of all outlined areas the same and equal to the number of given letters?

Yes, all areas are the same size and contain 5 different letters.

We found that the competition puzzle 14) Slash Pack has its password with repeating letters.
For example - if the password is SLOVAKIA, then each area should contain 8 letters (AAIKLOSV)

Please note that the updated instructions are here:
14. SLASH PACK
Divide the grid into shapes, using only the diagonals of the squares, without any loose ends. Each shape must contain all the given letters (ABCD in the example) as many times as they are stated. Two diagonals cannot cross in one square.
