Place two reds, two whites, two blues and two greens in every row, column and long diagonal.

The following clues will help!

A, B, C or D.
3. The blues are adjacent.
4. No clue needed.
5. No clue needed.
6. The pattern of colours takes the form abccdadb.
7. The pattern of colours takes the form aabcbcdd.
8. The pattern of colours takes the form abbccdad.

A. No clue needed.
B. The blues are separated by five cells.
C. There are no reds in cells 5, 6, 7 or 8.
D. No clue needed.
E. The blues are separated by six cells.
F. The whites are separated by six cells; the reds by two cells.
G. There are no reds or greens in cells 1, 2, 3 or 4.

To put in color, click the "View Source" check box below the comment area, at the right. Then use the color formatting font html tags.

<font color="&hff0000"> stuff in red </font>

the sequence of the double hex characters being degrees of red, green and blue--here the FF for red is the highest possible.

And of course you can link to my solution in posting the official one.

Hopefully the html above will show up in view rather than be used, as "View Source" is not checked here.
