## How to play

We publish 4 Slant puzzles every day - an easy, medium, hard and a bonus mixed puzzle.
This is an example of a completed Slant puzzle - your aim is to fill the grid to satisfy all the clues. You have to place a diagonal line in every cell - the number inside the circles tell you how many diagonal lines connect to that node.
The only other rule is that the diagonal lines can't form a loop.
This is an example of a starting grid - none of the grid is filled in initially.
The easiest place to start is to look at those clues that can only be satisfied one way. This will typically include these types of clues,
• '0' clues - we know that none of the surrounding cells connect to these nodes.
• '4' clues - we know that all of the surrounding cells connect to these nodes.
• '2' clues on a side - these are similar to '4' clues, we know that both surrounding cells must connect to these nodes.
• '1' clues in a corner - we know that the only connected cell here must be connected to this clue.
This gives us our starting point.
We are left with some clues that are already satisfied - the '1' clue in the middle of the grid is already satisfied, for example. This means that all the cells around this clue can't be connected to this clue.
