RulesEdit

   

Paint a triangle (◢, ◣, ◤, ◥) in some white cells. Some white cells may remain empty. A number in a grey cell indicates how many sides of triangles in orthogonally adjacent cells touch this cell. The remaining white space must form rectangular areas, oriented either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. Two white rectangles must not be orthogonally adjacent.
