GREATEST HITS MONTH!
AND A CONTEST!
PICROSS WORDS 2
It's the last week of Greatest Hits Month, and even though my birthday was a couple of days ago, I'm still in the mood to celebrate, so I'm creating another Contest Puzzle! Since this week's puzzle is a slight Picross variant, the prize for winning this contest is a Picross book or video game of the victor's choosing! There will only be one randomly-selected winner for this contest, though I might reward a second winner if the number of solvers for this puzzle is high enough! If you don't want to enter this contest, you can still solve this puzzle and opt out of the contest. Now with all the rules out of the way, let's get to the directions!
The numbers outside each row and column reveal how many groups of black squares there are in that line, all in order, and how many black squares there are in each group (So for example, "5 1" means there are five consecutive black squares followed by a single black square). If there's more than one number in that line, that means they're separate from each other and there's at least one empty square between them (Empty spaces could also be found at the start or end of a line). In case you're stuck or don't know what to do, you can always get some tips, tricks and techniques through this link.
As an added twist, the grid has been filled out by letters; once the Picross has been solved, the letters that have been colored in will spell out a hint that will lead you to the FINAL ANSWER.
This week's FINAL ANSWER is a title

Once you believe you've figured out the FINAL ANSWER, send it to either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com (though I'm more likely to check the second one) and I'll put your name on a solvers list once I post the answers in about two weeks. You can also use those email addresses to give me some comments and feedback (or get a hint from me in exchange for a "hint star", more details for that are on the sidebar to the right) or send me the answer to last week's puzzle, if you haven't already figured that one out. If you have a printer and want to solve this puzzle on paper, just head below the break for a version you can print out!
