    Pure logical solve … surface tab with various colours helped a lot ….

  • Menderbug says:

    Yeah, I also use Surface a lot for Pentominous, might be worth adding that to the Penpa links by default. 🙂

    Very nice puzzle! I haven’t done much Pentominous before and I appreciated that it was a smooth solve without getting too stuck but still feeling like I was making a variety of different interesting conclusions.
