This puzzle type appeared in Oguz Atay Puzzle Contest (OAPC)-7 championship with name Zahlenbild-Rundweg. I think "Zahlenbild-Rundweg" means Loop by Numbers. So I have used Loop by Numbers puzzle name to publish this puzzle type on this blog. There are many puzzles of this type I have created 5 years back and published here. This Loop by Numbers is an easy puzzle and I am re-publishing it as 22nd puzzle in Mini Puzzles Series.

__Rules of Loop by Numbers puzzle__

Each number represents one group of fields inside the loop. Each group contains linked fields equal to its number. Different groups must have at least one field outside the loop between them. Given clues are in increasing order.

just a doubt..shouldnt the third column have 5 as the clue instead of 6?

ReplyDelete6 looks correct as six parts of the square comes inside the loop. do let me if it contradicts any puzzle instruction?

ReplyDeleteAs there are only 5 squares total (either in or out) in that column, it seems unlikely that 6 of them could be inside the loop :-)

ReplyDeleteYou are very much right. Sorry I overlooked the first comment. I have corrected the puzzle now.

ReplyDeleteThansk for your feedback. Looking forward for more such feedback.
