Shinro (しんろ?) is a logic-based puzzle that has similarities to Sudoku and Minesweeper. The objective is to locate 12 hidden 'Holes' on an 8×8 grid. The board contains a variable number of arrows, each of which points to at least one Hole. A count of the number of Holes is given for each Row and Column.
New York-based puzzle-writing company Puzzability has been credited with coining the name Shinro in 2007. The name Shinro (しんろ?) translates to "compass bearing", referring to the arrows that point towards the Holes.
