Puzzle:
Code: Select all
`.47 ..1 ..25.. ... 4..9.. .4. .15.3. .52 ...... 7.4 ...... 18. .9.27. .6. ..1..1 ... ..43.. 2.. 57.`

Here's what I've got so far.

Code: Select all
`68    4     7     5     39    1     389   368   2    5     1     368   3689  2     36789 4     368   3789 9     268   2368  368   4     3678  378   1     5    7     3     689   69    5     2     1     4     68   1     2689  2689  7     39    4     2368  5     368  4     256   256   1     8     36    2367  9     367  2     7     589   4     6     3589  389   38    1    68    5689  1     389   7     3589  3689  2     4    3     689   4     2     1     89    5     7     689  `

Could this be a unique rectangle rule I'm not familiar with? ie
Code: Select all
`3589 389 3589 3689`

Thanks

Not one I can recognize (too many extra candidates). I have a Finned Franken Swordfish followed by a Nice Loop:

Finned Franken Swordfish: 3 r15b9 c58b6 f[r1c7] f[r7c7] f[r8c7] => [r6c7]<>3
Discontinuous Nice Loop [r1c7]=9=[r1c5]=3=[r5c5]=9=[r4c4]=6=[r6c6]=3=[r6c9]=7=[r6c7]-7-[r3c7]=7=[r2c9]=9=[r1c7] => [r1c7]<>38
