Nice puzzle, but I don't understand why it got three stars. It only cost me a few minutes.

Were you solving via logic or guessing/intuition? I went back to resolve, and hit the same wall that the other judge hit when they asked for the rating. It's certainly possible there's a logical path I'm missing here, but at the moment, I'm looking at bifurcation required to make progress.

I took a new look at this, and I agree with connect4. Half of it was really easy to solve, but then I'm in the same situation. I took one quick bifurcation that ascertained some segments, but now I'm stuck again.
Nothing serious, because in Fences the bifurcations are really easy to make (meaning, possible with the page's own tools) but I agree with 3 stars.

Hmm, good point, I went back to resolve as well, and it is indeed mainly the first half that is very easy, after that I don't see yet how to proceed without bifurcation. Then again, I usually bifurcate in Fences, and the positions which are very usefull to bifurcate are rather obvious in this one in my opinion, but that might have been a matter of intuition or luck.
