# Puzzle 44, Special Puzzles 6-7: Insane Mind Comes Again

EDIT in 2017 because someone tried solving these: in Special Puzzle 6, row 7, the right clues should say `? 5` (the 5 is to the right) instead of `? ?`.

Puzzle 44: Outside Fillomino. Follow regular Fillomino rules. In addition, each of the number outside describes the content of some cell inside that is of distance at most 4 from the edge (for example, a clue above C1 points to some cell in R1C1-R4C1, and a clue below C1 points to some cell in R7C1-R10C1). No two clues point to the same cell, and the clues are read in order (the clue that is two squares above C1 points to a cell earlier than the cell that the clue that is one square above C1 points to). Yeah weird rules; I’ll attach an example if necessary.

Special Puzzle 6: Outside Fillomino. Exactly the same rules as above, only that question marks represent numbers (not necessarily all identical or all different) which are all less than 10.

Special Puzzle 7: Cipher Kropki. Fill in the squares with numbers between 1-6 such that each number appears exactly once in each row/column. If and only if two orthogonally adjacent numbers differ by 1, there is a white circle between them. If and only if the ratio two orthogonally adjacent numbers is 2 in some order (the larger is twice the smaller), there is a black circle between them. Either circle can appear between consecutive 1 and 2. If no circle appears, then neither of the two conditions above apply. Count the solutions.

When your mind goes wild, these are the results… And yes, this is the only line of the “story”. Medium for Puzzle 44 and Special Puzzle 6, medium-hard for Special Puzzle 7.

Blah.

In other news, it seems that the element(s) that manage the images are broken (see previous puzzle). I’m trying to get them fixed. (EDIT: Seems like alt property of a elements hates line breaks. Manual edit on each image to remove the alt property solves the problem.)

EDIT: Whoo so I apparently forgot that Special Puzzle 6 has been posted before. This post will then have Special Puzzles 7-8. Too much care on numberings 😛
