I'm looking for name of the puzzle

Postby BakyX » Tue May 14, 2013 5:16 pm

Hi. I'm looking for a name of this puzzle:

Image

Rules:

The goal is to distribute Ys into cells such that distribution satisfies the following conditions:

1. There is a bijection between Xs and Ys such that we can pair X with Y only if there lies in neighboring cells (horizontaly or verticaly).

2. Two Ys can't lie into neighboring cells (horizontaly, verticaly or diagonaly).

3. The numbers determined the number of Ys in corresponding row or column.

Does anybody know the name of this puzzle, web site with harder problems than this or any good book, please ?

Thanks.

So you invented this and you want our opinion on a name?
Nice concept for a puzzle. This particular puzzle was quite easy to solve, I wonder if more difficult puzzles are possible.

The XY pairs are shaped like dominoes, with an X at one end and a Y at the other instead of numbers.

So maybe Dominoku?

"Dominoku" would raise different expectations...

BTW, evert posted somthing linking domino (Domino tablets) with sudoku (a closed set of different symbols) ... So, the answer is "To be or not to be" .... ;)

I found this puzzle in some old magazines. And here, I'm trying to find name of this puzzle, because I haven't more puzzles to solve already.

evert: If you really want, I could copy more puzzles from those magazines. Together there may be only about 20. Some of them are quite hard...

I'd be interested in a hard one!
Which magazine is it, which year and date? Perhaps never been on internet?

Did it publish the puzzle under some name?

That magazine was published in my country Slovakia. There is no mention on internet about it. Name of that puzzle was XY :(

But...I think I found original names, FINALLY. It is TENTS AND TREES. Rules are equivalent with this puzzle.

And here is book: 100 Architect Puzzles: Tents and Trees (link to Amazon)
