History of the puzzle[edit]

First appeared on Nikoli volume 47 (1994) as a suggestion from すらんた ("Suranta"). Originally named フィルオミノ (Firuomino), where フィル ("fill") and オミノ ("-omino") both being a loan word from English.

The name is an allusion to the earlier puzzle type, フィルマット (Firumatto), invented in 1993. In this puzzle, the same rule of "same-sized regions don't touch each other" apply, but regions are limited to rectangles with a width of one cell.
