For this puzzle, ignore the mandatory stacking rule. Pick any black tile (there are 12 in total). Fully surround it with the lowest number of white tiles possible (all edges of the black tile must be touching white tiles). Can you then fully surround the white tiles with the remaining black tiles?

(Check also SEVEN's puzzles)

I'm not exactly an expert, but I believe that this is a solution to said puzzle.
Hopefully I didn't misuse a tile.

Special awards to those finding the minimal solutions (minimum number of tiles).

Which would be the hardest one? Maybe '+'?

Although all are easier that those in SEVEN.

I don't know. I just tried + and got it similarly with 3 whites around it and 5 blacks around the whites. Similarly I got a "bulky 5" easily with 3 whites and 5 outer blacks.

(They surely all need 3 whites around the center black, and if it can be done with only 4 outer blacks, I'll be impressed!)

I missed this when writting the puzzle rules. 'Fully surrounded' means even diagonally. So all of the solutions above are not valid. Sorry
