Can it be made at all?
reply
Guest: Ekatarina (30 January 2017, 2:41) complain
No, only by guessing, which ruins the point.
reply
Guest: Ekatarina (30 January 2017, 2:54) complain
Actually, at a second attempt, it is. Concentrate on the bottom few rows of the picture to start with.
reply
Palouday (30 January 2017, 11:50) complain
Definitely doable, (first half dozen moves are harder) and results in a stunningly beautiful image considering the relatively small size. Thank you Tverianka.

Nice one, pretty much until the end I was clueless to what it is.

Kilimango (30 January 2017, 17:56) complain
Still concentrating on the bottom few rows. Have 9 blacks in total and thought I had a break in the bottom row, but wrongly so. There is enough room to fit everything right of (8,15). Remains impossible one for me

I loved how the picture suddenly appeared at the end.
reply
wentelteefje (10 February 2017, 8:35) complain
This one was very hard, but not impossible. It was also very rewarding: once I put the final square in, the pic finally appeared, and it was very beautiful!
reply
pmcatnip (21 February 2017, 6:38) complain
This one took me two attempts. At first I thought it couldn't be done but seeing the comments gave me confidence to keep at it. It is solvable with logic, no guessing. The beginning goes very slowly and after you get a ways in then it falls together quickly. The hint to focus on the bottom rows was helpful getting started. The technique used on the bottom rows is also useful for a column near the left.

Difficult start, then easy.

Guest: FellHarbor (10 March 2017, 23:18) complain
Wow, great puzzle! As others have said, the beginning is slow-going. Started with 2nd row up from the bottom, and that helped. The final picture was a surprise - worth it!
reply
Guest: Andrii (13 March 2017, 23:18) complain

I really don't understand why so many people struggle with this one... Beautiful picture.
reply
Guest: Cerno_b (29 October 2017, 0:46) complain
Tough nut to crack, especially in the beginning. Definitely doable.

Hint: For me the trick was solving the last row. I had to apply two different rules together to ensure that the filled squares are actually correct.
reply
Janet (15 November 2017, 0:38) complain
Interesting - thank you :))

Sheryl_Hill (21 December 2017, 18:28) complain
I understand that puzzles that were once difficult became much easier with experience. And challenges I could have met happily when healthy may be too frustrating when sick. It's not a contest. There's no shame in using hints or cheating if that's what you need to do to enjoy yourself. Why am I writing this? No one will read it. Haha!

I agree.

I just reach a limit of how hard I want to work. Hints help you learn - or remember what you ought to know.

I love Tverianka's puzzles so much I do at least one a day, when I can. I've noticed a little of my cognitive function reappearing. I think... ;) Thank you, Tverianka!

start at the 2nd to last row, and then go to the bottom one, then the puzzle just flows into figure

GORGEOUS puzzle! I can see why it's the top rated small black and white puzzle!
reply

If you're having trouble solving this, pay attention to the location of the x's. That's the key. This is a great puzzle for learning that method. I love this puzzle.

reply
smartymarty (30 July 2019, 13:13) complain
Great little puzzle! with no hints and just logic it took me under 10 mins. I've found that one useful technique once you're getting stuck is to look at the corners - if you have a strip of a few tiles along an edge, you can start at the corner and say "is it possible for this strip of tiles to begin in the corner square?" if they can't, then you can put a X in the corner square. Then move outwards - always being careful about what happens in the adjacent rows. Sometimes this technique can put you on the right track

I agree with all the comments. Tough to start and requires more logic skills than we are used to using on these small puzzles. Thanks for the break in the really easy stuff!

Hah, hah! I've never seen so many comments on a puzzle. I didn't find this one particularly hard (yes, I started from the bottom, as it's the first area I check out on any puzzle), and I think this is a beautiful picture. Once again Tverianka doesn't disappoint.
reply
Stephanie_Cummings (20 November 2023, 17:29) complain
Very nice! I didn't find it challenging, but I couldn't figure out the image until the end when my last few squares connected the image.
