Alternatively grouped kite (or turbot fish).
You didn't ask for pattern 7: empty rectangle or grouped kite again.

Not sure where u see the kite In 18?

Kites (grouped )are usully like this

Code: Select all
`/xx|///|/x/XX-///-/X..|...|.-x./`
Some do, some teach, the rest look it up.

Ah, you are right, i saw now that Havard had called that one "fish pattern", not kite (like him i see all those patterns just as 2 strong links weakly connected).
And - oops - in #7 there is no empty rectangle ...
Anyway, Red Ed should have the most common names of today now for the 3 basic patterns (finned x-wing, grouped kite and empty rectangle).

Empty rectangle
Or franken x wing

"franken x wing" is almost correct

finned Franken X-wing
r6b9\c17
with a fin in r7c89

*
r7c89
• is a fin [singular]
• are fin-cells [plural]

Aaaagh! TUFG definitions mix the terms fin sectors and fin cells interchangeably and improperly ... and often uses the term fin for either instance. Fin sectors occur in Nx(N+k) fish usage. Fin cells occur in NxN fish usage.

finned (cells) Franken X-Wing r6b9\c17 w/fin cells r7c89

In Nx(N+k) fish terminology:

finned (sectors) Franken X-Wing r6b9\c17+r7

Here, all of the NxN fin cells and eliminations are covered by a single fin sector -- r7. Sometimes, multiple Nx(N+k) fish are needed to account for all of the eliminations in a single NxN fish.
