How To Play Nurikabe

Games : Puzzles

Nurikabe is a popular puzzle game.

You start with a grid of any size, for instance 7 x 7.

In the grid, some cells are blank and some have a number in. For instance '3'. This number tells you how many continuous white cells there are in the finished grid.

The aim of the puzzle is to fill in all the squares that must be black. Each set of white cells is fully surrounded by black cells such that no one white area can touch another white area.

All the black cells must link together in one continuous wall so that someone could travel from any area of the wall to another.

Finally, the black cells can't be linked together in such a way to form a square of size 2 x 2 or larger.

Good luck!
