Doing the usual I was stuck after just one black square. So I came to a conclusion what has to be white and then all fell into place. But that conclusion was not obvious. Did I miss something more obvious?

I used the four 6s on the 2nd row deciding whether there were two of them that could not be used together JoergWaus.

Elisabeth is right. If you hypothesise that the first or second 6 on the second row are white, then look at the top-right hand corner. The 3 has to be unshaded, but it can't 'escape' - as soon as the area expands to the 4 immediately next to it, it's trapped due to the 4s pinning it into the corner.

So those 6s have to be shaded. Then the rest is, essentially, trivial.

Thank you for your response - I can see that now. I tried to figure out what I at my first try concluded, but I don't know anymore... Sorry.

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'.
