Dissection puzzles where the only rule is to dissect the grid into tetrominoes can also called be "Tetromino Division".
Divide the grid into tetrominoes. Each tetromino must contain exactly one clue. The clues represent the number of different shapes (under rotation and reflection) that share an edge with tetrominoes that contain the clue.
