In the GAPP (Genuinely Approachable Pencil Puzzle) series on the CtC Discord server, we have a bit of a tradition called Strange-Shaped Sunday where we tend to post puzzles on non-square grids. For a recent Sunday puzzle, I stumbled upon the idea of trying out Snake on a triangular grid and it worked out so well that I decided to make a few more puzzles for this ruleset.

The triangular grid adds a number of interesting deductions and it doesnâ€™t really feel like it loses anything that the square grid has. Snake (at least the vanilla genre) is a little notorious for being an intuition-heavy genre, but all of these puzzles were designed to be solved logically. I might explore this grid further with other snake genres in the future.

**Rules:** Shade some cells to form a non-intersecting path which does not touch itself, not even at a point. Black circles must lie on one end of the path. White circles must lie somewhere along the path, but not at an end. A number outside the grid represents how many cells in the indicated row are shaded.
