#62 Six-Side
  • Variants:
  • Hexagonal

Posted on 2022-01-22

This is a hexagonal Tapa puzzle. The standard rules for Tapa apply, except for the rule forbidding a 2×2 square, which is replaced by a rule forbidding any interior vertex from being entirely shaded; that is, no interior vertex has all three of the cells surrounding it shaded.

I do like the way that big clues in this variant block off areas all on their own. It provides an interesting set of issues.

Thanks to IHNN for finding uniqueness and solution issues in the first versions of this Tapa.
