## Love Trap

(Eingestellt am 23. Juli 2022, 11:57 Uhr von Hecspeed)

This puzzle is a shikaku-sudoku hybrid inspired by Qodec's Ship's Wheel.

Here is an example to illustrate the hybrid ruleset:

The rules for the main puzzle are as follows:
• Normal sudoku rules apply.

• Shikaku Rules: Divide the whole grid into non-overlapping rectangular regions such that each region contains only one circle and each circle is contained in only one region. A square can be a rectangular region. Every cell of the grid is a part of a region. The digit in a circle indicates the number of cells in the corresponding rectangular region. All such circles are given.

• Orthogonally adjacent cells separated by a black dot are in the ratio 1:2. Diagonally adjacent cells separated by a black dot are in the ratio 1:2 only for the circled digits. All black dots are NOT given.

• Numbers in the cage must sum to the given total in the top left corner of the cage.

Your feedback, ratings and comments are highly appreciated as always. Happy Solving!

Lösungscode: Row 4 (left to right) followed by Column 7 (top to bottom)
(18 digits, no spaces)
