Hex Kakuro by Serkan Yürekli


or solve online (using our beta test of Penpa-Edit tools)

Theme: The Eye

Author/Opus: This is the 70th puzzle from our contributing puzzlemaster Serkan Yürekli.

Rules: Fill all empty hexes with digits from 1-9 so that all number clues (in white) indicate the sum of the digits in that direction. Digits cannot repeat in any entry (i.e., any group of hexes connected either horizontally or in one of the two diagonal directions, without any black cells separating them). This no repeat rule applies even for unclued entries.

Answer String: Enter the values in each cell in the marked rows from left to right, separating the rows with a comma.

Time Standards (highlight to view): Grandmaster = 7:00, Master = 11:00, Expert = 22:00

Solution: PDF; a solution video is available here.

    Another great puzzle. I got stumped on this one with 4 clues left to fully resolve, and I broke down and guessed between two options to complete things. I’ll go watch the walkthrough video now to see what I missed.

    If there was a “Fave” button for the week as a whole, I would definitely click it. The thematic variation this week across several different puzzle styles was really interesting. I can’t think of another week in recent history when I’ve enjoyed the puzzles so consistently throughout the week.

    This has too much bifurcation for the ending, or I missed some subtle logical step. The top half is an excellent puzzle, however.
