Masyu by Thomas Snyder

[This is a repost from our archives with new notes at the top (original post here): Our first Loop/Path puzzle genre on the site was Masyu, a style from Nikoli that focuses on white and black clue elements on a big grid, sharing some visual inspiration from Go. The distinct rules of going straight through and turning at the “pearls” leads to different kinds of logic as seen in this “25th” puzzle from over a decade ago.]
