Tents Help

Rules / Objectives Summary

  • You have to find all of the hidden tents.
  • Each tent is attached to one tree (so there are as many tents as there are trees).
  • The numbers across the top and down the side tell you how many tents are in the respective row or column.
  • A tent can only be found horizontally or vertically adjacent to a tree.
  • Tents are never next to each other (vertically, horizontally, or diagonally)

See the Basic Ideas or Walkthrough for extra tips and tricks.

Tents Puzzle


What are the numbers for?
These tell you how many tents there are in the Rows and Columns.

Move your mouse over the puzzle to see the answer.



Basic Ideas

  • The numbers across the top and down the side tell you how many tents are in the respective Row or Column.
  • Each tree has one tent attached (either horizontally or vertically), and each tent is attached to only one tree. However, a tent may be adjacent to more than one tree.
  • A tent can only be found horizontally or vertically adjacent to the tree it's attached to.
  • Tents are never placed next to each other, neither vertically, horizontally, nor diagonally.
  • Any Row/Column with a 0 clue, means that there are no tents in that Row/Column, so we can mark all of those squares as grass. Any square that is not next to a tree cannot be a tent, and must be grass.
  • You may then find Rows or Columns whose tents can only go in one place. Always remember to mark squares horizontally, vertically AND diagonally next to a tent as grass. It might also help if you tick a tree when you know that you've found its tent.
