About Tents

Tents ("Tents and Trees") is a logic puzzle invented by Léon Balmaekers (Netherlands). The task is a grid of squares, some of which contain trees. The goal is to place tents in some of the remaining squares, ensuring the following conditions are met:
Basic Rules
  • There are exactly as many tents as trees.
  • Each tent must be directly adjacent (horizontally or vertically, but not diagonally) to its own tree. However, a tent may be adjacent to other trees as well as its own.
  • No two tents can be adjacent horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.
  • The number of tents in each row and each column matches the numbers given around the sides of the grid.
Additional Rules for Tents and Trees
  • Each tent must be adjacent to exactly one tree.
  • Tents cannot be placed on the same square as a tree.
Basic Solving Tips
  • Start by identifying trees that have limited adjacent squares, as these are likely spots for tents.
  • Use the row and column numbers to determine where tents can and cannot be placed.
  • Remember that no two tents can touch, so placing one tent will often rule out multiple adjacent squares for other tents.
  • Use process of elimination to gradually narrow down the possible locations for each tent.
