Rules of Kropki Puzzle
Fill in the grid with digits 1 – N where N is the size of the grid so that each row and column contains each digit exactly once. If two consecutive digits appear in two neighboring cells, they are separated by white dot. If digit in a cell is half of digit in the neighboring cell, then they are marked by black dot. The dot between 1 and 2 can either be white or be black.
