Solving Color GraphiLogic Puzzles
As solving GraphiLogic and Color GraphiLogic is very similar, this page only describes the differences. Please

Mind the gap!
After you got used to the mono-color GraphiLogic, you might easily miss the counting of a color one. In the mono
version, every two block was separated by at least one empty cell. In Color GraphiLogic, block of different colors
might touch; block with different colored neighbors might have no closing cell.
Matching colored blocks:
Different colored blocks:
Count with colors in mind
A block of 3 cells and a block of 4 cells of the same color filled the entire 8-cell space:
With non-matching block colors, nothing is the same:
Determining if a block has a fixed cell is really similar to the mono-color version. The only difference is in
calculating the sum: add all the sizes of the blocks, and add a gap between each matching colored blocks.
With the above example (a 2-cell red, and two 2-cell greens):
- sum: 2+2+1+2 = 7
- space: 8
- the biggest block is 2-cell: 7+2 = 9, it's greater than the available space (of 8) by 1, thus each of the 2-cell
blocks are having a fixed cell.
