Unfilled Space

Filler space is the space between a sold square and the internal edge of the Collage.

Space joining a square to the Collage edge will be filled with background colour - the same as the advertisement for the neighbouring sqaure - or the advertiser can use that space with no charge. Obviously, space outside the Collage cannot be used. The Collage consists of the space just inside the letters MERROWS. Also the actual letter outline of the Merrows word cannot be used.

To use filler space, the priority is as follows:

  • Squares to the left of filler space can fill squares to their right.
  • If no right squares exist, then the first column squares have rights there.
  • If no right or left squares exist, then the filled squares underneath take the filler space.
  • If no left and no right, and no underneath squares are there, then the squares above are used.
  • To summarise in order of priority, Square->Filler
  • Filler<-Square
  • Square UPWARDS TO Filler
  • Square DOWNWARDS TO Filler
