Re: Sudoku Classic

yes Mr Fred, this has several solution, but this is important that you will choose the better solution. The better solution is the same 1 solution, because in some of cells(4 cells) there are pair shared value, but 1 of those cells has 3 digit and we must the digit that is difference with pair numb...

Re: 2014 WPF Sudoku Grand Prix

Puzzles not quite as easy as I suspected the experts would have found them - only 6 finished all-correct, but note Kota beating 2nd place (Rishi) by over 10 minutes! 20 players solved all sudokus without mistake. 2 players also solved all sudoku, but with one mistake. Yes, Kota was very impressive....

Re: 2014 WPF Sudoku Grand Prix

I'm glad I managed to go error free this time, but in good practice I really ought to have finished all of it in time. I also ought to have submitted a dummy answer for the 90 point puzzle - was never going to get that done in 6 minutes I think, but the partial bonus that wrong answer would have gi...

Re: WPF Sudoku GP - Round 1 : 25-27 Jan 2012

I am still surprised to note how people living on the same planet as me can storm through such a set of puzzle so quickly. Don't be surprised, it was an interplanetary contest: for example: Kwak, Zuffranieri and Seshadri come from saturn. The 3 best players Vunk, Mrozowski and Ondrousek live farthe...

Re: croco-puzzle

The # feature works fine for me for the skyscrapers/sudokus/kropkis, but I have another problem:
I find it even more useful to write 2 candidates on a cell using simply the key "-", which seems to work on skyscrapers/sudoku, but not on the kropki.

Is it idelibarate or did I miss something?

Re: UKPA Sudoku Championship 2012 (17th - 20th August)

(Actually, puzzle 8 was ridiculously easy.) On the contrary, I found it very hard :!: The reason is quite simple and stupid: I forgot the "untouch" rule while solving. It is only at the end when it only remains 2 pairs 36 in boxes 4 and 6, with no 3 or 6 in the respective diagonals, thus no way to ...

Re: UKPA Sudoku Championship 2012 (17th - 20th August)

1. Are the two main diagonal constraints present in Little Killer? 2. Can I see the solution for the IB's Multiple Sudoku? 1. As it is not in the IB puzzle, and there is no mention about that in the rules, I think we can assume that there is no main diagonal constraint. 2. Solutions are in the last...

Re: UKPA Sudoku Championship 2012 (17th - 20th August)

Can we find other Quad max sudokus with this format? Like Tom, I'm a bit disturbed with this one, just because I'm used to this format: http://wiki.logic-masters.de/index.php?title=Quad_Max_Sudoku/en which is more common for this variation, and is quite different (I don't say that one is better than...

I was asked if I was as good at Sudoku as I seem to be at the other puzzles. The results of this test will give you your answer. :roll: mmmm, we can't have a good answer considering only one test. If you want to prove us that you're a bad sudoku player, please take part in more sudoku test :twisted...
