What is mosaic?

Mosaic is a picture forming logic puzzle.

The puzzle starts with a rectangular grid that has some empty cells and some containing numbers.

These numbers represent how many cells are to be coloured in. Cells that are relevant are the eight cells that immediately surround the given cell and the cell itself (assuming the cell is in the middle of the puzzle) - there are of course less options at the edges and less again at the corners.

Once you have worked out which filled cells surround each numbered cell such that the number of filled cells matches the number in those given cells, the puzzle is finished, and will usually reveal a simple piece of black and white artwork.
