## Puzzle 415 (Fillomino) [Liar]

This is a Liar Fillomino puzzle. In addition to the usual rules, exactly one given number in each row and column is false.

Puzzle 415

Part 4 of 4 in my half of the preview series for Fillomino-Fillia 2. See mathgrant’s blog for the other half.

Answer Entry: Enter the units digits (last digit) of the number in each circled cell starting with the leftmost column and going right.

The test will be available to play on LMI pretty soon. Please give it a go this weekend if you can find the time, and good luck if you do!

Satisfying solve.

I just noticed that you posted the preview puzzles in roughly the order they will appear in the test, save for Snake being earlier than Sum. The big-pointers will be my weak points since now I still haven’t managed to solve the Skyscrapers preview Let’s see…

• MellowMelon Says:

The big pointers are big pointers for a reason, of course.

Snake being earlier than Sum was due to mathgrant and I not quite alternating who made which preview, but yes, going in order was intentional.

• chaotic_iak Says:

Okay that sounds stupid. I mean I think my point/minute score for the big-pointers will be lower than for the small-pointers.

Also finally solved all previews. Made a mental checklist of avoiding certain stupid errors appearing when solving the previews, and also to use the solving instruments more effectively (shading a liar gray in MS Paint for Liar and using MS Excel for Skyscrapers, among other things). Yay.

Great puzzle as always. Liar Slitherlink was great; I hope this will add a different perspective to the type.

@chaotic_iak: You solve in Paint? That seems really inefficient, and I hope during the actual test you don’t do that :). I stopped that after trying to solve mathgrant’s large puzzles or MellowMelon’s harder Fillomino in Paint. The only types I would see feasible in paint are things like Tapa, Nurikabe, etc. Even Corral is pretty cumbersome.

• chaotic_iak Says:

I solve most in Paint. Yes, ineffective, but when not being pressured by time it’s okay. In the test I’ll solve most in Paint or Excel; only when I need I copy the puzzle to my puzzle notebook.

Yes no printing. If I go to print them first I’d lose 10-15 minutes. Screw my printer being unable to connect with my laptop that I use for internet etc.

I’m taking too long to ask this, but did I inspire you to put this variation in? ‘Cause… well, cyrebjr.livejournal.com/34526.html
