Most of the new puzzle types which you see published it on this website appeared in Oguz Atay Puzzle Contest (OAPC) championships. This Consecutive Loop is no exception. This puzzle type appeared in (OAPC-8) and that time I created two puzzles of this type. One Mini puzzle I am publishing it as 26th puzzle in Mini Puzzles Series. The other puzzle I created for 10th 24 hour Championship.
Rules of Consecutive Loop puzzle
Fill the grid with digits 1-9 so that no digit is repeated within a row/column. Each pair of consecutive neighbors should have a line between them, forming a closed loop. All lines should be part of the loop. There cannot be any loop lines in the crossed places, and some lines may be already given. Also if there is block, it cannot contain any number but its sides can be the part of the loop.
