The Times Online have had the new interactive Sudoku game running for a fewdays now.
Our first article for the Times Online was published today. It covers the essential techniques to conquer the hardest rated Sudoku in The Times and Sunday Times.
If you ever wanted to know how to solve a Super Fiendish, or if you want to know how you managed in the first place, check out the article and leave a comment.
Our Sudoku are in The Times and Sunday Times every day now! Someone thought of a good idea with the text 2 win £1000 each day. The final squares the some of the last possible values indicating that the person has really completed the grid. For the first day’s puzzles, go to the Times Online.
Our first batch of Sudoku puzzles will be arriving in The Times on Monday, 13th November.
In addition to the 4 ratings: Easy, Mild, Difficult and Fiendish, we are introducing a new very hard level: Super Fiendish. These puzzles will always require a solving technique such as triples, x-wing or swordfish. If there is a demand, we can make this rating harder by introducing other solving techniques in the new year.
All ratings will have a better consistency with quite distinct difficulties. Now, the Difficult rating will kept on the rails without occasionally being too easy or too hard for the majority of players. The Fiendish category will remain a challenge to most Sudoku players with exposed and hidden pairs to discover in many puzzles.
We had our very first Samurai Sudoku published in The Times this Saturday. It will be the first of many of our Sudoku related puzzles that appear in The Times and Sunday Times.
I am just getting worse and worse at adding new entries to this blog. I really must put a daily alarm somewhere to remind me to write something here.
