 Posted: Sat Jun 23, 2007 12:44 pm    Post subject: houses does seem to mean a group of unique digits boxes seem to be falling out of favor for nonets this may have to do with jigsaws where the nonets dont have any resemblance to a rectangle you may say latin squares have 18 houses sudokus have 27 houses center dot sudokus have 28 houses sudokuX have 29 houses lucky clovers http://uk.geocities.com/petersudoku/Lucky_Clover.html have 41 houses note the 14 clues as you add houses its somewhat obvious the number of clues for a unigue solution go down the how many question for latin squares was answered long before sudokus. unique sudokus = 5,472,730,538 but these are the only ones ive seen counted although i saw a jigsaw that had 8 clues._________________"It gets dark at night" - Olbers

Hint Hint For the next version, please remember to highlight the asterisk and center dot cells for on-screen and printout solving. Everyone at SudoCue Forum have a great weekend. I am going to visit my first grandchild, born two weeks ago tomorrow. He lives about 10 miles from here. It's about time he start learning sudoku solving, don't you think? Regards, Goerge
