    01:38. Why am I breaking Grandmaster times more often now… You should have asked me to testsolve the puzzles 😛 (that was kidding)

    Not as easy as usual “Grant’s Easy” difficulty, but a nicely flowing puzzle. Not too tedious; at least there’s some variety from “pick a row/column that seems too full/empty and complete it”.

    And I just realized the 2 figure that the 2s at top-left created. 😛 A well-done theme.

    Also, unrelated to the puzzle: Is it possible to have a “preview comment” button or something?
