This Samurai should be rated "2 Easy." The center (solution) sudoku solves using only hidden and naked singles. I did not solve for a single digit in any of the four constituent puzzles. Sad

The puzzle was solved in a few minutes by line box reductions and naked singels only in the center puzzle. Obviously a computer generated puzzle. Had Ruud been around this puzzle would never have been posted.

There was a time this puzzle would've been graded Very Hard due to the X-wing required in the bottom right grid.

I agree, It's the botom right grid that was really fun to solve.
If you are only interested in the central one, without further work, it was really a practice session on how to use SudokuSolver Very Happy

Here's one for you to wait...

Should be "a little bit" harder than Ruud's "Very hard". One move will unlock it. Not an X-Wing, but some other wing.

Enjoy Cool

I assume that everyone here knows www.samurai-sudoku.com. I usually solve the ones rated Fiendish, posted every Friday.

Using one of the first two worksheets in this Excel Workbook, you can pretty easily rip the Sudoku code from the web site and onto the clipboard, and then paste it into Clueless Helper or your favourite solver/helper program.

Firebug is an add-on to Mozilla Firefox. If you are not familiar with installing add-ons to Mozilla Firefox, use the second worksheet. Albeit the meager user guide here says "Start Microsoft Internet Explorer", you can of course use another Internet browser instead.

If you want a Sudoku code ripper for an Internet site not supported in the Excel Workbook, send me a PM and I'll look into it.

Jean-Christopher...Thanks for the puzzle! And, Borge, thanks for the info re: fiendish samurai on Fridays Very Happy

Since I had a bit of extra time this week, I finally worked up the courage to try an Assassin. Number 40 was certainly a good starting point for a beginner (as suggested by Andrew Stuart).
