Theme: Outside Clues

Author/Opus: This is the 155th puzzle from our contributing puzzlemaster Prasanna Seshadri.

Rules: Standard Yajilin rules, except that instead of blackening single cells, blacken in dominoes (1×2 rectangles). Clues indicate the total number of dominoes (not the total number of cells) that are shaded in the given direction.

Answer String: Enter the length in cells of the horizontal loop segments from left to right in the marked rows, starting at the top. If the loop only has vertical segments in the marked row, enter 0. Separate each row’s entry with a comma.

Time Standards (highlight to view): Grandmaster = 5:00, Master = 7:30, Expert = 15:00

Solution: PDF; a solution video is available here.

    Don’t know why but I broke this one endless times until I decided to stop my timer and solve slower .

    Same, the dominoes rule meant I kept assuming standard rules that no longer applied, took countless restarts before I solved. Very nice problem now I’ve finally got there!
