## Cave of Killers

(Eingestellt am 22. April 2024, 23:41 Uhr von Jay Dyer)

It's far too long since I last posted a puzzle here. I got a little overloaded recently with matters of health and life in general, but am getting things back on track and can hopefully start making puzzles regularly again. This one's been waiting in my backlog for a few months, so it's about time it got published.

Rules

• Normal sudoku rules apply.
• Shade some cells so that the unshaded cells form a single orthogonally connected area, and each connected shaded region touches the grid boundary.
• A circle is always unshaded, and the digit in the circle equals the number of unshaded cells visible in a straight line from that cell, including the cell itself. Shaded cells obstruct the view.
• All corner clues are shaded, and each shaded region contains a corner clue which equals the sum of the digits in that region. Digits may not repeat in a shaded region, and the digit in the clued cell equals the size of the region.

Lösungscode: Row 7

A question: may different shaded regions touch each other?
-----
No, shaded regions can't touch each other.

Thank you very much for answering! And now, after solving this jewel of a puzzle, I just realize how silly my question was … Sorry - and again thank you so much for setting and sharing this masterpiece.
