Theme: JH (for Jamie Hargrove)
Author/Opus: This is the 263rd puzzle from Thomas Snyder, aka Dr. Sudoku.
Rules: Variation of LITS. Shade exactly four cells in each outlined region to form an S, L, I, C, or Y tetrahex. When all regions have been shaded, the following conditions must be true:
1) All shaded cells will be connected through a network of adjacent shaded cells;
2) No three shaded cells will share a common vertex;
3) When two tetrahexes share an edge in adjacent regions, they must not be the same type (S, L, I, C, or Y), regardless of potential rotations or reflections.
Answer String: Enter the length in cells of each of the shaded segments from lower left to upper right for the marked rows. Separate each row’s entry from the next with a comma.
Time Standards (highlight to view): Grandmaster = 4:45, Master = 8:00, Expert = 16:00
