    6:28 Several times while solving I found myself pausing for a fairly long time wondering how to make progress before realizing that I was staring at some trivial deduction that I just hadn’t noted.

    It was a nice, smooth puzzle, and just my own blindness that kept me hesitating in my progress.

    A nice puzzle, unusually harder than usual for a Monday. Or perhaps just less obvious deductions. I also like the amount of hidden polyominoes.
