## SudoCue - Sudoku Special |

SudoCue offers you a ## Friday July 13, 2007. Black FridayWe were all shocked by a total forum blackout today. Ten years from now, addicts will still remember this day and ask each other: “Where were you when the forum went down on sudocue.net?”. They may even write a song about the event. The following Taiken will make sure we never forget! You need some creative moves to solve this puzzle, but it does not require any trial & error. Erm ... where do I write pencilmarks?

Queens’s Day Special Clueless XEach April 30, here in Holland we celebrate an ancient tradition: Queens’s Day. Sort of Independance Day without the “in” part. That day, the Queen and her family go visit and pretend to like their subjects who pretend to like them back. Orange is the color of choice on Queen’s Day. The following puzzle is dedicated to our beloved Queen. It is Big, Orange and Clueless. All constituent Sudokus, including the 22nd Clueless Sudoku in the blue cells, require digits 1 through 9 in both diagonals.

Last week I've been perfecting my new program called This puzzle is a Sumo combined with a Clueless. There are 13 overlapping Sudokus in Sumo formation. The overlapping boxes are clueless. There is a 14th Sudoku formed by the blue cells. This Sudoku is also completely clueless. The resulting puzzle has 25 empty boxes. It can be solved with basic techniques: singles, locked candidates and subsets.
## November 28, 2006. Introducing the Kazaguruma (Windmill)Now that the Samurai contest is going, I am honored to introduce to you a new type of overlapping puzzle. This puzzle has 5 overlapping sudokus, like a Samurai, but the overlap is 2 boxes in stead of one. Because the shape reminded me of a windmill, and because I live in Holland, I named this variant Kazaguruma, the Japanese word for windmill. This puzzle can be solved with relatively easy techniques, but you can also use the twin nonets technique to speed things up. You know what to do with those numbers below the puzzle.
## November 23, 2006. Asterisk Sudoku
An interesting variant. The blue cells must also contain digits 1 through 9. This variant has been introduced by
## November 17, 2006. My First SamuraiI have changed the program that I use to make Clueless puzzles. It can now also make Samurai puzzles. Here is the first result. Update: You can now join the Samurai Contest. Use this puzzle for training.
## November 10, 2006. Mystery Decompression SudokuHere is a new type of puzzle, inspired by a post on the Sudoku Programmers forum. The following line represents a Sudoku. The digits are the given numbers and the letters A, B, C and D replace the empty cells. Each letter represents a decompression instruction like “insert 2 empty cells”. The letters have no specific order. That would be too easy. However, to help you on your way, I will give you a hint: The given numbers form a symmetrical pattern.
Thanks to A9CA37BD4AC1AC1C28BC68A9BC7DC1BCA7A64BA23C6B5AC2BC83AC9 Here is the decompressed Sudoku. The codes were: A=2 empty cells, B=remainder of row empty, C=1 empty cell, D=4 empty cells.
## October 27, 2006. Killer-XHere is my second Killer-X. SumoCue cannot help you solve this killer completely, but I have verified that a solution can be found with a combination of Killer and regular Sudoku techniques. Please post your walkthroughs on the forum.
To play this puzzle using SumoCue, download and open this file. ## October 13, 2006. Mystery Letter SudokuMany people have solved this puzzle by now, thanks to a big hint by Motris. He happens to be a chemist. This is a little one-off gimmick. To figure out the clues, you need to find a way to convert the letters into numbers. People who enjoyed my Celebrity Killer may think this is similar, but not so. Use the forum if you want to share your insights with fellow addicts. Once you know how to convert the letters into numbers, the Sudoku can be solved with moderate techniques. If nobody has found an answer in a week, I will post a small hint. Good luck with this one!
## October 12, 2006. SukakuI have a new program that can generate a very interesting variant of Sudoku. It is not new, but I’ve given it a new name.
Complete the puzzle in such a way that each row, each column and each 3x3 box contains digits 1 through 9. Sounds familiar? In a Sukaku, there are no digits placed in the grid. Instead I will give you a grid with possibilities. Because there are no given numbers, the puzzle can be more difficult than the hardest Sudoku you've ever seen. This puzzle is not too difficult. I found some real baddies, which cannot be solved by some of the best solvers, which I will publish at a later date. The solution is below the puzzle in tiny text.
