Puzzle 171

Fill in the missing numbers with the digits 1 to 9. A diamond shape in the middle means that the four numbers around it add to 20.

Each uses a different way to add to 20, i.e. if there is already 1 + 3 + 7 + 9, then there will not be another using the digits 1, 3, 7 and 9 (in any order).

The same digit isn't allowed to touch, even diagonally.

Hint: Row 1's missing letter is A which makes Column 4 a little easier to think about.

Answer:

Across: OVAL, WISH, TOMB, REAL
Down : VAST, BROW, LIME, HALO
Boxes : VOWS, HAIL, BRAT, MOLE
Note : Other anagrams of these words are OK as long as they don't change the answer grid.
