Theme: Infinity!

Author/Opus: This is the 51st puzzle from our contributing puzzlemaster Serkan Yürekli.

Rules: Divide the grid into some regions formed of edge-adjacent squares. Each cell is part of one region, and each region should contain exactly two given numbers. Each region must have an area that is strictly between those numbers (This means, for two number clues A and B with A < B, the area C fulfills A < C < B).

Araf Example

Answer String: Enter the number of cells in each connected group (between bold lines) in the marked rows. If a group is a multi-digit number, enter all digits of that number. For the example above, the entry is is “34,121111,4111”.

Time Standards (highlight to view): Grandmaster = 8:00, Master = 15:00, Expert = 30:00
