    Great puzzle, thank you! In the end, I had more trouble with the rather “elementary” logic involved in the second part of the puzzle than with the break-in.

    after that though it was smooth sailing

    Is the logic at the very top the same/ very similar to that of the bottom?

    • MellowMelon Says:

      Only in a superficial way. It’s the same concept taken in different directions.

      • ksun48 Says:

        Okay, that’s what I thought.

      • Bryce Herdt Says:

        By the way, was it important that the numbers 1-10 all appear in black squares? It’s a bit of a shame you have two 8’s.

      • MellowMelon Says:

        That was not intentional in the slightest and I only noticed it when I read your comment. It’s kind of funny I made the 2 and the 6 point the way they did for it to work out, since they could have gone the other way.

        In fact I actually aimed for the two 8s to end up the same number as a small touch, since they felt like the most important clues post break-in.

    Wow, this one is giving me a bit of a headache with those bottom two rows. I can only seem to get one or two short of the goal. Is there supposed to be a different spot to break-in, or am I missing a step somewhere that will make those rows doable?

    • MellowMelon Says:

      Getting all 19 horizontal segments in the bottom area is possible and tricky. It is also the major break-in of the puzzle.

      Simple counting tells you there are at least three places where you need a horizontal segment in row 9 directly above another one in row 10. Two should be easy to find, but there’s a subtler one near the middle.
