1. For HEYAWAKE in main section -
The answer key will be different that what it is specified in the IB
New Answer key: Enter the number of shaded cells in the 3th row, followed by the number of shaded cells in the 3rd column.
For the example the answer is 0,2
This post sort of tripped me up. Apparently, it was not the 3rd row and column but the ones specified in the PB. I guess I must have misunderstood, I actually had the correct answer until I noticed the huge red announcement in the sidebar. :D Oh well.
I've never solved Nikoli puzzles, and keenly realized the importance of experience.
Especially, Akari and Heyawake (which I couldn't solve within the time-limit) were thought to be tough for non-Nikolist.
Anyway, Thank you for the nice puzzles!
