Friday Puzzle #32 - 2010 Nurikabe
One of my big goals/resolutions for this year, well represented by the entries in the 2010 project, is to find some venue (or more likely create my own) to start publishing these types of elegant puzzles more routinely in the US. I'm tried of the label "Japanese Puzzle" being thrown around with inferior, computer-generated puzzles when these types are not constructed with an artful touch by hand as they are meant to be. From Sudoku on up the logic ladder, I'm going to create a forum for the puzzles I would want to be solving.
This week's entry to the 2010 Project is a 20x20 Nurikabe. It uses some less common steps (but then what regular Nurikabe puzzles have so many double-digit islands?). It might qualify more as a Botsu Bako puzzle for that reason alone. Still, enjoy!
