ABCD Logic Puzzle Rules
The rules of ABCD Logic Puzzles are as follows:
Here is an image of the start position of an ABCD logic puzzle:
Noting the rules above, the 'C' above column one means that the first letter encountered in that column is a C. This means the first square in the column must be a C, *or* it is a blank and the C is in the second square in the column, *or* both the first and second squares in the column are blank and the third square in the column contains the C. This means that where a letter is given at the start of a region it can never appear in the fourth, fifth or sixth positions of the region (and vice versa if a letter appears at the end of a row or column it cannot appear in the first, second or third square of that region).
If you would like a visual explanation of the rules, here is a video outlining the above:
