Ah yes. You are correct.

And thanks for the tip for including the picture.
Sorry. Disregard my previous message. The given solution is indeed unique.

So am I mistaken, or is there an alternative solution to this puzzle?

As far as I can tell, this puzzle can also be solved in a slightly different way, by changing three connections a bit to the top right from the middle of the puzzle...

Let's number the disks from the top to the bottom, left to right. So the disk in the top square is 1, the one two to the bottom right from there is 2, the three on the row beneath that are 3, 4 and 5, etc. Let us consider the disks numbered 3, 4, 8, 9 and 12.

Now in the "approved" solution, 3 is connected to 4, 8 to 9 and 8 to 12.

In my alternative solution, 3 is connected to 8, 8 to 4, and 9 to 12.

Apart from these differences, the rest of the solution is the same in both alternatives. This should not be possible: there hould only be one, unique solution.
Hi,

Up until three days ago, PuzzlePicnic worked fine for me.
As of today, I get an error message whenever I try to start a puzzle.

In the past, I got a popup window asking me for permission to run a Java application, but as of today, I just get the message that running the application is blocked by my system.

I am running the java engine version 51.

Any ideas what might be wrong?

Kind regards,
Boudewijn.
This puzzle should be one star. I solved it in a few minutes, without any guessing. It was completely straightforward.

Never mind. I overlooked the rule that all coloured squares must be conneted.
That effectively disables the two "alternatives" above.
Hi,
This is the first LITS puzzle I have tried, but still, I have the feeling that the solution is not unique...
The big area in the middle has, according to the official solution, the following "filling":
Code:
```  xox
xoox
xox
xxx
x```

However, I think the filled squares could also be dirstributed in the following ways:
Code:
```  xxx
xoox
oox
xxx
x```

or:
Code:
```  xxx
xoxx
oox
oxx
x```

Basically, you can just "move" the S-shape one or two squares to the bottom left.
Am I overlooking something? Dit I miss a rule?

Nice idea!
Hi,

I would like to suggest to add a colored eraser next to every stylus on the right of the screen. Clicking on such an eraser would (after confirmation) clear everything *in that colour only* from the grid.

Kind regards,
Kroisos.
