Man this one was tough. Basically nothing except a few patterns to go off of. I cant remember ever having taken ten minutes for a daily puzzle. Did anyone see anything that you think others probably missed? Or was is this just a strategic guess type puzzle?

this puzzle was evil - I made a guess - made some progress by doing some nasty nested guesses in my head (which I am not good at) and eventually just Assumed that I was right since I had made it half way. I think this is the first time where I have decided to assume and continue, with the justification that I had so little progress made before the assumption started that if I had to completely reset, it would only take a couple of seconds to get where I was upto beforehand.
Even then I had to make another guess to finish it off.

It was a lot of guessing for me.
Edit: My solution (which I've removed) was flawed. Let me try to fix it.

Hehe... as if I'd do that...
Anyway, I found it very tricky too... but at least the 'wrong' wasn't too bad!

Definitely a strategic guess puzzle.
This one, I got a good time on by just letting my subconscious do the hard work. It can often see the solution without relying on any logical patterns. Woman's intuition, if you will.

Indeed one of the toughest daily puzzles ever. How this rated as only "hard" I would like to understand.
On top, I had a network outage, and spent about 5 minutes fixing this after having finished the puzzle in about 7-8 minutes. Ouch. I guess there is no hope of convincing the Powers that Be to correct my score - especially since i don't know exactly how long I took.

This Friday's puzzle is another good one for exercising your intuition.
