- The object is to uncover the
hidden picture and make all the Star Lights
- Start with the larger segments. In the example we start with the columns first.
Then, if you start at top and the bottom
the middle is filled in where there is overlap.
- Use dots to mark squares you know are empty.
In row 7 the first segment has 1 darkened
square so we can put dots on either side (segments of the same color are separated by a blank.)
- In column 7 we used dots to exclude the top 3 squares.
- In column 8 we put a dot.
- In row 2 we have a starting point in the 2nd column and we can fill
in two more squares.
- We have enough information to complete column 4 and we finish this rather
- Sometimes there is not one larger segment but two or more segments of squares
that add up to over half the size of a row or column. Count from both ends remembering to leave
an empty square between segments of the same color.
