Click or move your mouse over the puzzle to see its answer.

Above each puzzle is a list of ships that are hidden in the grid.



Basic Ideas



Idea 1
Ships are not allowed to touch, in any direction, so placing a ship piece will force other squares to be water.

The system will automatically update a ship with the correct pieces once it can determine its length.
