Thanks; a good challenge! Didn't know how to decide on the last few cells without a chain probe. DEF 4 and 6: Which is which at the end?


I've been getting a Privacy Certificate expired warning for the Str8ts pages. Anyone else seeing this ?

Bypassing the privacy warning I can't see the puzzle in Chrome, but I can see it in Edge. Also, I've emailed Andrew about the problem.

Pleased to say that Andrew has responded to my alert and has renewed the SSL certificate for the forum, whatever that is :)




Perhaps someone else would like to post a standard puzzle.

Thanks@Leren, I like the X puzzles

I had to get used to this X puzzles, but this one was great. Also needed a headchain using the diagonals.
