Double LITS by John Bulten


Theme: Which Way is Right?

Author/Opus: This is the 23rd puzzle from our contributing puzzlemaster John Bulten.

Rules: Same as LITS, except that each region must contain two shaded tetrominoes. These two tetrominoes within a region cannot touch each other, and can be the same or different shapes.

Answer String: Enter the length in cells of each of the shaded segments from left to right for the marked rows, starting at the top. Separate each row’s entry from the next with a comma.

Time Standards (highlight to view): Grandmaster = 10:00, Master = 20:00, Expert = 40:00

    A heavy dislike for this puzzle.The bottom half part seemed to run way too thin on logic.

      I always appreciate your comments. The intent was that it should be pretty easy to solve from the top if you nffhzr bar bs gur gjb bcgvbaf naq gura, vs lbh jrer jebat jura lbh trg gb gur raq, erirefr vg. Vg’f rnfl gb ernq gur fbyhgvba bss rira vs gur jubyr tevq vf onpxjneqf.
