One of my many (useless) skills is I am quite proficient in using a diabolo. For those who dont know, a diabolo is essentially a larger yo-yo, with sticks and strings. This puzzle is meant to depict a green diabolo on string between 2 sticks.

Hope you enjoy!

I also spent ages trying to figure out how the nabner would work if it only restricted the neighboring cells. Haven't done too many, but at least on I did worked even when I misunderstood the rule.

Once I did another puzzle recently where the nabner rule was described in a bit more detail I realized I could try that here and lo and behold, things got way easier.

In the end very nice and not too difficult puzzle.

This was my first puzzle with nabner lines constraint, very nice and interesting!.. I was just looking for an approachable puzzle to get confidence with it. It was a great fun solving it at the first shot, thank you @Dr. Logic for setting and sharing it. Regarding your diabolo, the useless interests and passions are the greatest!.. I know what you mean, sometimes I engage myself constructing very very useless stuff…

How can this be a 2-star puzzle, I am stuck on it since 85 minutes and around 60 with no progress >< I don't see anything.

EDIT : I've just seen in another puzzle that a nabner line needs to have no consecutive digits on the whole line, regardless of order, and not just prevent 2 neighboring digits from being consecutive. 3 minutes later, the puzzle was done.

I remember having one of those, the tricks were great fun!

I don't always bother with >9-digit solution codes, but I simply needed to convey how much I enjoyed this. Great setting, thanks for sharing!

I'm glad you enjoyed the puzzle :)

Being colorblind, I was doing nabner logic on the whisper lines and vice versa. tried that twice and realized it was impossible, so went the other way and got it in <10 minutes. ha.

Oh no! that must have been difficult. Hope you enjoyed the puzzle nonetheless.,

Yes, I was able to prove the ones I thought were nabner could not be so within a couple minutes, so not a big deal. Did enjoy it, indeed.
