Select next on win screen.
Select the present date and choose a different day.
Fill the grid with black tiles (boxes).
Between each of those boxes is a white tile (square).
The numbers of the sides of the grid indicate the number of cells that are boxes or squares.
Each row and column has a different limit of boxes.
If a row has a second number, it represents two groups of boxes separated by a single square.
Use a cross to mark a space as a possible square.
Relying entirely on guesswork to fill in the puzzle is an exercise in futility.
One mistake based on guesswork will throw off your entire strategy.
Although you can use the query button to check your answers, you must use this sparingly. It will take too long to check each answer you make at random.
You can use the query button to eliminate possible wrong answers.
Use the numbers as guides.
Often, this means working with one row or column at a time.
Because the first cell in a row or column would be a black or white space, start the blocks from the center onward.
Compare the patterns in intersecting rows and columns
Use contradictions to eliminate ambiguities. If two cells can be a box, find out which of the two will cause the row or column to be in error. The one that doesn’t cause an error is the correct answer.
The game is suited for people of all ages who like coloring games & simple logic puzzle games.
The game has no adult themed content.
