Thanks a lot Ruud. No one will finish that thing before they retire. What is the highest level technique needed? 26 puzzles, oh boy.

Yikes!! The Sumo-X and Clueless Sumos were crazy enough (fun, but crazy). Just need one clarification: The clueless puzzle is also a Sudoku-X?

*a couple minutes later*

Yeah, I can't read sometimes, and so it is a Sudoku-X.

One other thought. When will Ruud be issuing a Clueless Helper for this puzzle. LOL LOL

I personnaly have trouble trying to do 5 things at once, but 26? If I could do 26 things at once, my boss would be really pleased.

Good job, Ruud!!!!

Regards,
George

This puzzle can be solved with the techniques you have in your toolbelt, George.

Chances are slim that a helper will ever appear for this format.

Is is a single puzzle, not 26, so effectively you are doing one thing. It's just a very big thing to do. Laughing

I used Clueless Helper to aid with the Clueless Sumo. You could, conceivably, use it for a Clueless Shaolin-X, by manually plugging in the 9 grids with the clueless parts and remembering the X constraint. Of course, that still leaves you to solve the other 16 grids, so it likely will not save you that much work.

Hi

Is there a way we can get a version that is printable with larger squares?
A format that would fit on multiple A4's. If not i will try and see what i can make of it myself.
Want to try to make a poster format out of it and just stick it on my wall so it is easier to solve, which means i can make some notes in the squares. I can hardly write numbers in these squares if i print it like this.

thanks

My program only creates these smaller images that fit on the website.

Maybe Marlie will have a version in Excel that can be enlarged. Marlie?

This one is to big for me to work in excel.
I pasted it in paint and solve in paint like i told a few weeks ago.

Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

i cannot paste it here so i send it to Ruud and maybe he will paste it here.

i am using paint so too. But on my laptop it crashes if i try to get it to the size i'd like to to print it. But i'll manage somehow. Just need to get some time in to solve it all these 15 minute sessions aren't helping a lot.

Link to an image created by Marlie of the complete puzzle with candidates:

And this is the central grid that goes with it:



Thanks for the images, Marlie!

Ruud, that was a really nice puzzle, thanks a lot! Give us the next one! Wink

On second thought you shouldn't give us a new one, at least not for the next few weeks, so that families won't get destroyed. Wink
