There we go, the last of the series. Of course, the blog is turned off again for the moment, at least until I manage to construct more puzzles. I’m busy too, you know. (By the way, expect things.) Answer key would be “lengths of horizontal segments in row/vertical segments in column” for R1/C2 (or R2/C1 or something).
Another difficult “opening”. Also for some reason I find sudden interest on Pure Loop and Heteromino now, like exploring two untouched lands… (Okay, I think I see it being used in more things now, but still.) Did you know that Heteromino almost got into FAST (as an uninteresting 3×3), but Deb decided it was too obscure and got replaced with Kakuro, which in turn also got replaced by Next Term? The more you know.
