or solve online using our beta test of Penpa-Edit tools; use tab to alternate between a shading mode and a composite mode where left click + drag draws line segment and right click on cell edge adds an x.)

Theme: Logical

Author/Opus: This is the 11th puzzle from guest contributor Bryce Herdt.

Rules: Variation of Cross the Streams. Instead of the “no 2×2 shaded square” rule, in this hexagonal grid no 3 cells that share a point can be shaded. Also, the shaded region must be able to be split into tetrahexes to form a valid SLICY solution (meaning all tetrahexes are connected but no two tetrahexes sharing an edge are the same shape, including rotations and reflections).

Answer String: Enter the length in cells of each of the black segments from left to right for the marked rows, going in order from A to B to C to D and separating each entry with a comma.

Time Standards (highlight to view): Grandmaster = 5:30, Master = 8:15, Expert = 16:30.
