Pentominoes Dimensions Inequalities

(Eingestellt am 18. Juni 2021, 15:59 Uhr von RockyRoer)

I've made lots of sudoku puzzles - this is my first experience branching out into non-sudoku setting. Hope you enjoy!

If you liked this, here is another that uses this concept in another way: Pentomino Skyscrapers

The Rules:

  • Fill the grid with pentominoes. Pentominoes of the same shape (even after reflection or rotation) are not allowed to touch.
  • A horizontal inequality sign separates pentominoes, and the symbol refers to the WIDTH. A vertical inequality sign separates inequalities and refers to the HEIGHTS.
    • In the example puzzle, the I pentomino has a width of 1, the S-(red) has a width of 2, and the T has a width of 3, so the inequalities in R1C123 are satisfied.
    • In the example puzzle, the S-(red) pentomino has a height of 4, the V has a height of 3, so the inequality in R23C2 is satisfied.


      Penpa Link for example:

The Puzzle:

Penpa link with answer check. Only check's edges drawn in green.

Lösungscode: For each cell in row 9, the width of the pentomino it is in, then for each cell in column 2, the height of the pentomino it is in. (20 digits). Example with row 4 and column 2 would be: (13222 44333)

Your description should call the 'V' pentomino a 'V', not an 'L'.
Looks intriguing! I will definitely try this one.

REPLY: thanks - description has been edited. By the way, the other puzzle i posted using this concept may be interesting too -- you may want to take a look at that too. Not sure which is 'easier' they both use similar yet different logic. Good luck!

--yes, I saw it and will try it also
