nonogram??

[Post New]by JoBee1215 on Aug 23, 12 9:08 AM
I have been a member of BFG for several years but have never come across this term. I am either slow or have a vision problem (maybe both!)

Could someone please let me know what this is.

Thank you
JO

Hi JoBee

Games like "Arizona Rose and the Pirates' Riddes", "World Mosaics", and "World Riddles" are nonograms.

You have a 10x10 square, say, and the numbers on the outside tell you how many of the squares you have to fill in on each line.

Hope this helps.

JoBee, to expand on Valdy's explanation, a nonogram is easy to solve.

You have said 10 by 10 square and numbers written next to all lines and colums. Let's say next to line 1 is a...

10: this means you have to fill out all the squares in that row
0: this line is absolutely blank and can be left as is
2: a block of two squares has to be filled out, the other 8 squares are blank
5 and a 4: the first 5 squares have to be filled out, then you got one blank square, and the final 4 have to be filled
3 and a 3: two continuous blocks of three are somewhere in that line, the other 4 squares are blank

Continue logically for each line and column and you get a picture.

There's one in Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Persian Carpet and one that is random and blind (you're facing the other way) in Dracula 3: The Path of the Dragon.
