Puzzle 10: Slants 1

Decided to go with the English name of “Slants” for this rather than the Japanese “Gokigen Naname”.


  1. Hm, I seem to be running into a problem with this one at the start. I don't think the 4-2-2-3 in the fifth column is possible, As having 4 lines from the 4 automatically gives you the lines connecting to the 2 2s. However, the 3 couldn't have 3 lines coming from it, making this puzzle have 0 possible solutions.

  2. Yeah, there is also a contradiction in the clump of numbers on the right hand side. I'll have to go back to my notes...
