Re: 2011 UK Sudoku Championship (11-12 June 2011)

Nice contest! I like the top heavy variatiion, but finished just after the submission deadline. Frameless is nice, but too time consuming (for me) to even attempt in a timed test.
Kudos to the organizers and contributors.

Re: 2011 UK Sudoku Championship (11-12 June 2011)

In kid sudoku, can we rely on the digit sum clues being greedy? (i.e., maximal sum before starting a new sum). It seems desirable to have this point explicit in the rules statement. Thanks.

Example: for 62173..., greedy sums require clue 97... . Non-greedy sums would also allow clue 88... .
