This is a Saturday Numerical Stairs puzzle.

Puzzle 184

Probably the first puzzle to really show what this type is capable of. For an extra challenge, the puzzle is solvable without one of the two clues. It was added because without it an unacceptable (to me) amount of thinking ahead is needed. Having said that, if you find yourself having to do just that, step back and try to develop some new logical techniques.

    Strong puzzle. The more I do of these the more I learn (marking odds/evens; clearer sight of how to generate contradictions to eliminate passages, etc.) Good thought puzzles.

    I really enjoyed this puzzle. I just found your site and I’m very impressed with all the original types you’ve created! It is great cross-training for my brain, jumping from one type to the another. Have you explored hex-grid variations for any of these?

    I have thought about doing different grids. The main problem is that the self-made program used to generate the images is currently nowhere near versatile enough to do anything but squares. It’s one of those things that has been on the future plans list for a very long time.

    Thanks for the comments, and I’m glad you’ve been enjoying the puzzles so far.
