Trapezoids

Here is a new type loosely inspired by Inaba Naoki’s Cell-Land.

Rules

Shade some cells such that:

  1. Numbers indicate exactly how many surrounding cells are filled.
  2. Filled cells must be in clusters of 3, forming trapezoids.  A trapezoid may not share an edge with another trapezoid.
  3. All unfilled cells are connected edge-to-edge.

Truncated Square Chocona

Chocona (チョコナ) is a puzzle type that likely originates with Nikoli.  I have adapted it to play on a Truncated Square grid.

Rules

Shade some cells such that:

  1. A filled square may not share an edge with a filled octagon.
  2. Filled octagons may share an edge, but only if the contiguous area of filled octagons forms a 45° oriented rectangle.
  3. Each bold-outlined region must have at least one filled octagon.
  4. Numbers indicate exactly how many cells, octagon or square, are filled in a bold-outlined region.  Regions with no number can have any number of filled cells.
