Puzzle 93b: Regular Tapa

I thought the underlying “regular” Tapa from the JaTaHoKu I published earlier was worthy of a dedicated post. Is there a name around for this variant?

While resolving this one will require a few case distinctions, it does have a reasonable break-in, and is quite doable if you choose the right spots. It’s possible that prescribing the number of shaded cells is not necessary, give it a try with three shaded cells per row/column.


Rules Solve as a regular Tapa. Additionally, there must be exactly four shaded cells in every row and column.
