If you are new to hanjie, it is a fun logic puzzle from Japan. You create a simple piece of pixel art by solving the clues. The numbers around the edge of the grid tell you how many squares are to be shaded in each row and column. You never need to guess, though you might need patience. This puzzle has lots of different names, which include griddlers, nonograms and many more besides.
