Puzzle 12 – Masyu [First seen]

This is a Tuesday masyu puzzle with a twist. Draw a loop such that the circles on the outside of the grid could be put into the first square in their row or column containing a segment of the loop.

The observant of you might have noticed that this is the 2nd 12th puzzle on my blog. This is because I stupidly started on a Tuesday, but now I discounted 2 puzzles to reset the total so good multiples of 5 would land on Fridays 🙂

Yay for white-black rotational symmetry, I believe this to be the first masyu puzzle I’ve ever made with perfect white-black rotational.

This has a tricky break-in, but dies easily with bifurcation, so if you want a challenge, find a non-guess-and-checky break in
