Question from Rob:

Puzzle 15: Kakuro Domino

Judging by the example, numbers *may* repeat in rows/columns, just not within "words" (like normal Kakuro).


In fact, the example is wrong, the numbers may not repeat in entire rows and columns. We will fix the example.

Puzzle 11-12: Gaps between battleships

Will the fleet be the same in the puzzle? Or, if there are ships in the fleet where reflection matters, is reflection of ships allowed?

Puzzles 9/10, Galaxies and tetrominoes/pentominoes.

The instructions mention numbers on the right/bottom, while the examples don't. Just to check whether this part of the rules applies to the competition puzzles?

Puzzle 5: Snail on snake

The puzzle seems to have two solutions (swapping the 1s in columns 4 and 7).

Puzzle 1: Loop around pentominoes

Just to be sure, if there were two Zs in the grid with one space in between, they would have to belong to different pentominoes. I.e., exactly one given per pentomino.

The L-shaped ships are used only for the example. In the competition puzzles only standard straight ships are used.

This applies to competition puzzles. We will add it to the example as well.
