Can anyone give me some tips on these? I know if it's 2-3-2, the 3 is white. If it's 6-6-7-6, the right most 6 is black. Any other hints?

First you find all the ones that has to be white. Then they hopefully lead to some black ones. Around the black ones you must have white squares.
After that you make white everything that can be white.
Then I experiment with the remaining numbers.

elo15, that's how I start. The next parts are "shape"--you can't trap a corner (or section) in black, so if you have 2 diagonal squares on the corner and on is black, the other must be white. You can then use this for trapped diamonds (can't have 4 black surrounding a white square), or even whole sections. You can also use a sort of inverse rule--if there's nothing to make a number black (e.g. it's unique in its row and column), then it must be white.

Key

  • A yellow/light blue highlight in the time distribution charts highlights your time, where relevant.
  • Rating scores out of 10.0 show the average difficulty rating chosen by users, where 1.0 is "Easy" and 10.0 is "Hard".
  • If a puzzle is opened more than once, including by loading from a saved position, then this is potentially a significant aid so it is listed as being completed with 'multiple sessions' for the purpose of the best time/average rating displays above.
  • Minor aid is defined as no more than one use of 'Check solution' when incomplete and/or no more than one use of 'Check solution' when wrong; and/or using highlighting aids (show repeated digits, show broken inequalities and show valid/invalid placements [slitherlink] only). Major aid is any and all other use of the solving aids except for 'show wrong'.
