    36:00 … surprisingly, this went much faster than yesterday’s, even though the zeros messed with the bit of intuition I’ve built up over the week. Beautifully designed puzzle with a very fun solve path. 🙂

      This was my experience too, but we had some testers that went the other way and took much longer on Saturday than Friday. Probably tied to how well you handle the new constraints versus a less typical “standard Kakuro” solve.

    14:03. That zero rule definitely slowed me down, but it made things interesting. I’d play more puzzles with this ruleset.
