About Slitherlink

Slitherlink rules are simple and straight-forward. Each puzzle consists of a rectangular lattice of dots with some clues in various places. The object is to connect the dots surrounding each clue so that the number of lines equals the value of the clue and the lines around all clues form one continuous loop with no crossings or branches. Empty squares may be surrounded by any number of lines.

Following the footsteps of Sudoku, Kakuro and other Number Logic puzzles, Slitherlink (Japanese: スリザーリンク) is a family of addictive loop-forming logic puzzles originated in Japan. Other internationally known names for Slitherlink include Takegaki, Loopy, Ouroboros, Suriza, Surizarinku, Sli-Lin and Fences, as well as Loop the Loop, Dotty Dilemma and Number Line.
