## Tapa Mashup with Clones

(Eingestellt am 25. Februar 2022, 10:00 Uhr von Mark Sweep)

This puzzle was created to celebrate the tenth puzzle on my blog, which I started about two months ago. I am not planning to post many of the puzzles of my blog on here as well, but I think this one may deserve it. Enjoy!

Rules
Shade some cells so that all shaded cells form one orthogonally connected area. No 2x2 region may be entirely shaded. Clues cannot be shaded, and represent something in the (up to) eight cells surrounding the clue, depending on their location in the grid:

Tapa (top left): the lengths of the blocks of consecutive shaded cells
TapaQ (top right): the number of blocks of consecutive shaded cells
PataQ (bottom left): the number of blocks of consecutive unshaded cells
Pata (bottom right): the lengths of the blocks of consecutive unshaded cells

In addition, the four 5x5 squares (outlined in blue) are exact clones of each other. The X in these squares cannot be shaded.

Note that for Pata or PataQ clues, other clues also act as unshaded cells.

The puzzle

Solve on Penpa

Lösungscode: The lengths of shaded blocks, from top to bottom, in column 9 and column 12.

Very nice long and consistent puzzle. Took me quite a while, but I am not very proficient at Tapa, so that's probably why :). The cloned region was a very nice touch that added a lot of interest to the solution path.

Very nice, that was quite a workout! It is so easy to apply the wrong rule in the wrong quadrant by mistake. Really rewarding when everything came together, though. Thanks, Mark!
