Masyu (also known as "Shiroshinju Kuroshinju", "White pearls and black pearls") is a type of logic puzzle. It is played on a rectangular grid of squares, some of which contain circles; each circle is either "white" (empty) or "black" (filled). The goal is to draw a single continuous non-intersecting loop that properly passes through all circled cells. The loop must "enter" each cell it passes through from the center of one of its four sides and "exit" from a different side; all turns are therefore 90 degrees.
The two varieties of circle have differing requirements for how the loop must pass through them:
