Cross the Streams (SLICY) by Bryce Herdt

Cross The Streams (SLICY) by Bryce Herdt

PDF

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.

Cross The Streams (Comparison) by Joseph Howard

PDF

Theme: Logical

Author/Opus: This is the 2nd puzzle from guest contributor Joseph Howard.

Rules: Standard Cross the Streams rules. Also, some sets of row/column clues have comparisons made to the left-most or upper-most ? clue. The value used for a ? clue must also be used for the remaining comparisons in that row/column (e.g., if ?, ?+2 the values could be 1, 3 or 2, 4 or 3, 5). ?= means a later clue has the same value as the first ?.

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

Time Standards (highlight to view): Grandmaster = 7:30, Master = 12:00, Expert = 24:00.
