I post this puzzle here just to show you that I can now create any Sudoku variant you can imagine.

Here is a world-premiere: the Shaolin-X

It has 25 constituent Sudoku-X puzzles. 16 in a 4 x 4 formation, connected by 9 in a 3x3 formation. Pythagoras would have appreciated the beauty of these numbers. The total number of cells is 1701.

As for required solving techniques... I'm not sure. You need several moderate and advanced moves, but I cannot tell you the exact list of solving techniques.

It has a guaranteed unique solution. I can also guarantee that this puzzle will definitely ruin your family life, if you had any left...

Gee Whiz.

Ruud, Is that a reference to my family life or do you speak from experience?

I think I'm safe here for the time being...
You didnt twist my arm by making it a contest, since I am a list addict. (uh oh out of the closet now)


You gave the answer too.... so my free time is safe for a few more weeks.

That Windmill caught my eye and it looks solveable in finite time, I'll probably try that out first.
