A nice puzzle involving,as it did,lots of 1/2 combos.
Many thanks Mike.

Many regards

Gary

P.S.Hopefully the number of people enjoying the assassin is not reflected in the number of replies.

Enjoyed this one..many thanks.Took me just under the hour..no really difficult moves so I'ld rate it about 1.0.

Regards

Gary

P.S. Looking forward to seeing no.100 even though it sounds fears ...

Thanks for a nice puzzle,Afmob.Took me 45-50 mins and I'ld rate it about 0.75.I think it's just the sort of level of difficulty that the forum needs now and then to bring in new people who may not be ...

Yes,the last version of 97 was horrible!!What surprised me though was that all the variants,including this one,were solvable in roughly the same way.. combo work on r789 and,especially N8,which then ...

I enjoyed 97 v1.5 too.



As for v1 it was relatively straightforward to show that in N8 the numbers are;
275
938
146

After this it got tricky.Could place r1c1=3/4 and r1c9=2
In N2 1 is in ...

Re UA97 V1.

I found this one fairly easy.Took me 35 minutes to complete which was OK,long enough for a Saturday evening!!If we rate the Times "deadly" killers as about 0.5 I'ld say this o ...

I certainly wouldn't say v1 was "much too easy" for regular assassinators.
It was relatively easy to show that the 13(2) cage N2 ={67} but then I didn't spot for quite a while that the 1 ...

Thanks for pointing out the typo Andrew..I should have posted...can eliminate 3 from r5c3 as this places a 3 at both r4c4 and r8c4.

I'ld rate this as 1.25 at least..or maybe I'm out of practice!?
The innies of n14-> r5c3=2/3,r6c23=1 2/3 so r7c2=4/5,hence r6c6=7/8.With r7c126=10 combo work in n7 places 4 in either r7c2 or r8c23 ...

For a change I did this week's "mind bending" killer on killersudokuonline,number 114.Quite good fun..I'ld rate it as harder than the Times deadly ones but easier than any assassins,so about ...

Sorry to be a bit heretical but I've actually enjoyed NOT doing an assassin for a couple of weeks.Now I feel a bit fresher and looking forward to future challenges whereas all those 1.25+ brutes were ...

Not many replies re this one.I think Afmob's rating is about right.I didn't use any really hard moves solving this killer combos in n9 and rows 89 together with r258c8=13 leading to some early placem ...

Like Afmob I was only able to solve this one using a contradiction "move".



I-O combos on N1 together with constraints from the 6(3) cage N1 and r159c4=9 -> r4c1=4
The 14(3) cage c ...

Yes,much easier than last week's.

once the various prelims are in place and you can place r3c3=5/6/7/8/9 then the other combos in r3 and N4 mean that 13(2) cage N2/3 must be 94 after which it's a s ...

Hi Andrew,

It's not that I'm a particularly fast solver but that I don't normally keep a wt as I go along as this definitely slows me down.Of course it is then sometimes a problem when I wish to ...
