What’s with this weird clue layout? And… 5 colors? This looks like a holiday gift gone wrong…

    That was a cute and timely puzzle. Kinda tough, but I’m not the most experienced at these. 🙂

    It is a Friday puzzle of a type I don’t post too much of, and I know you’re not the only one that had trouble with it. Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the comment.

    At first I was wondering if the clues were supposed to be in the shape of a gift with a bow or something.
    Then I solved it, and everything made sense 😀

    The interaction between the regions in the bottom right actually threw me off until I realized that a black square can separate two squares in the same region… under very special circumstances.

    By the way, BRAVO. You should be proud of this one.

    I seem to be getting a very quick contradiction.

    Doesn’t the configuration near the purple cricle force the 2 to be purple, or else the purple dot is either trapped or the square above the 3 is black and useless, and then there is no way to resolve the 1 sandwiched between 3 colors??
