May - Hashi-o-kakero

Post by Prof. Tarma Amelia Black » Tue May 01, 2018 11:42 pm

What would May be without a Hashi-o-kakero? Well, it'd still be May ... :ph34r:

Earn yourself 25 Hoots by solving this Hashi!

Image

Send me your answer in a HOL PM by May 31st with “HOLLERS-May-Hashi” as the subject, and you will collect those 25 Hoots.

Remember - If you get stuck on it, somehow, and it's not yet the end of the month, send me what you have and I can look at it and indicate which is correct and send back to you for another go at it.

Good luck!
**********
By the way, if you haven't done a Hashi before, here is a little information about them.
First off, Google "Hashi" for some instructions on what it is and how to play it.
Here is a result of a quick search:
Rules of Hashiwokakero
Connect islands (the circles with numbers) with as many bridges as the number in the island.
There can be no more than two bridges between two islands.
Bridges cannot go across islands or other bridges.
The bridges will form a continuous link between all the islands.
Then - look at the puzzle.
All '8' numbers have four 2-bridge sets going from them.
All '7' numbers have four bridge sets going from them, 3 with 2 bridges, 1 with 1 bridge.
All '5' or '6' which have their back to a wall (or a blank area) have to have 3 bridge sets going from them. The bridge sets for the '6' will be of 2 bridges each.
If there is a 3 in a corner, it must have a 2 bridge sets going out from it
A '1' never goes to another '1'.
Do the obvious bridge sets and then look at it to see what changes are made for the remaining numbers. Do you now have a '5' or a '6' with their back to a wall?
