There is now weekly Tapa Variation Contest. I have created some of the Tapa puzzles for the practice of this contest. This is new puzzle variation related to this type.

"Outside Tapa" Instructions:

Tapa clues are given outside the grid (not in order). Distribute all of the given clues to the marked cells in the corresponding row/column, one clue set per cell and solve the Tapa Puzzle.

Paint some squares black to create a continuous wall. Number/s in a square indicate the length of black cell blocks on its neighbouring cells. If there is more than one number in a square, there must be at least one white cell between the black cell blocks. Painted cells cannot form a 2x2 square or larger. There are no wall segments on cells containing numbers.
