This time there are four flavours to choose from:

A) The mainstream edition.
B) The quickie. Solving it took me about 1/4 of the time it took me solving the mainstream edition.
C) The JLynn edition: 3 N/H Pairs, 1 Turbot Fish, 2 Grouped TF, 1 XY-Wing.
D) The Extra Super Ultra Hard edition: 25 N/H Subsets (P/T/Q), 9 assorted TF, 8 assorted Wings, 94 assorted Chains.



Substitute Clueless Special #4A

Rating based on required solving techniques: Moderate
My personal rating based on actual solving: Tough

Glad you liked it. Very Happy

Since people seem to prefer different difficulties I plan (depending on time available and other factors) making it a semi regular thing to post several difficulties and from your feedback I have gotten the impression that you like the more difficult ones and are very good at solving them.

If you have no objections I will continue to call the more difficult edition "The JLynn Edition". Do you want me to post the required solving techniques? I can make them hidden, i.e. font colour = post background colour.

For the more difficult Explosion and Samurai editions I have not yet decided on a name, but I could also call them the JLynn editon or the Glyn, Marlie, Nouggie, Sarah or YOUR-NAME edition. Any volunteers?

And then?

Finished #4A, found it easier than the other ones you've rated Tough. Maybe I am just in good form today. Cool At some point I'll set aside my seafood allergy and give #4C a shot.

Extra super ultra hard has to be named after Marlie, as she's the only one who admitted to finishing the DOAGs.

I don't want to ruin your good form theory, but #4A should be easier than any of my previous SCS'. The rating based on required solving techniques (Moderate) is lower than for any of my previous SCS'.

I will try to generate puzzles on the easier side than on the more difficult. At least until I get complaints about the puzzles being too easy.
