### Nurikabe Loop by Murat Can Tonta

PDF

or solve online (using our beta test of Penpa-Edit tools)

Theme: Primes

Author/Opus: This is the 125th puzzle from our contributing puzzlemaster Murat Can Tonta.

Rules: In this variation of Nurikabe, the no 2×2 ocean rule is removed and instead all ocean cells must belong to a single closed loop.

Specifically: Divide the grid into regions called “islands”, each containing exactly one of the given numbers and with the same area as that number. Islands can only touch diagonally. A single closed loop (without intersection or crossings) must be drawn in all remaining cells.

Answer String: Enter the length in cells of the horizontal loop segments from left to right in the marked rows, starting at the top. If the loop only has vertical segments in the marked row, enter 0. Separate each row’s entry with a comma. This example has the key “12,3”.

Time Standards (highlight to view): Grandmaster = 5:30, Master = 10:15, Expert = 20:30

Theme: 1 to 9 (Originally on 2018 Puzzle Grand Prix Round 3)

Author/Opus: This is the 7th puzzle from guest contributor Ashish Kumar.

Rules: Standard Nurikabe rules. Also, the numbers outside the grid show the number of shaded segments visible in that direction (as in Skyscrapers).
