I'd love to see some hints on how to solve the dotted snakes.
The intended order of solving was starting from bottom right and going clockwise: in that case every single puzzle could be solved uniquely.
Thanks, I got through now. It turns out the two solved grids were ok. I realized some new things about dotted snakes in the process
(particularly how they're close to "star battle" in some ways
), though I didn't actually manage to prove uniqueness.
