Advanced Tips

Advanced 1

Whenever you see two 3 clues in this configuration (or vertically), you know that the slants go this way.

Why: we cannot have two slants pointing to one 3 clue and away from the other. This means that exactly one slant points to one, and another slant points to the other. Therefore the other slants must go this way.

Advanced 2

Whenever you see a 1 clue along an edge and a 3 in this configuration (or along the other edges), you know that the slants go this way.

Why: one slant points towards the 1, and the other points towards the 3, therefore the other two slants must go this way.
