    What, no comments on this one? Well then, allow me. I’ve never solved this puzzle type before Monday, but I found it the puzzle entirely approachable, slowing down only when I had to figure out the bulk of that first question mark. (And I screwed it up at first, mismarking one square, dividing up the numbers into two distinct sections. Panic! Luckily, I found the error in due time.)
