In "Alphabet Blocks", can alphabets repeat across blocks (i.e. can Die1 and Die2 both contain "A"s for e.g.)? It doesn't happen in the example that's why asking if it explicitly cannot repeat?

There's a rule missing from Summon, explaining the numbers on the outside.

In "Pencils", do the lines originating from Pencils without any number in them also have to be the same length as the pencil? In the example it holds true but rule is stated only for pencils with numbers.

Also for Pencils, I think the example puzzle is non-unique in the path that the 3-pencil can take.

Yes, pencil lines from pencils with no numbers have same size as the pencil. Rules and example will be updated in next version

In "Easy as Snake" the sequence of the words can be confusing. Because of the nature of the example, it was clear in the example but if it is more generic words one might get confused with "Uno Dos Tres" or Uno Tres Dos".

In "Hiroimono", do we have to pass all stones or only the white stones? Rules state only white stones but that won't result in a unique solution.

You need to pass all stones. Grey markings are only for the answer key.

It appears that the example puzzle for Cross The Streams got column 2 cut off a bit.

The Icebarn example has an incorrect solution. In the upper right, two arrowheads collide along the solution's path. There is a solution, it's just not that one.

Also, the third row should probably have the symbols switched.

Hebi Ichigo: Can snake touch itself? i.e. can 1 and 5 of of same snake touch, or 2 and 5 of same snake be adjacent? If so, then I could not infer this from the instructions.
