Re: UKPA Sudoku Championship 2012 (17th - 20th August)

1. Are the two main diagonal constraints present in Little Killer? 2. Can I see the solution for the IB's Multiple Sudoku? 1. As it is not in the IB puzzle, and there is no mention about that in the rules, I think we can assume that there is no main diagonal constraint. 2. Solutions are in the last...

Re: UKPA Sudoku Championship 2012 (17th - 20th August)

Can we find other Quad max sudokus with this format? Like Tom, I'm a bit disturbed with this one, just because I'm used to this format: http://wiki.logic-masters.de/index.php?title=Quad_Max_Sudoku/en which is more common for this variation, and is quite different (I don't say that one is better than...

I also thought the mini sudoku was a little too much trial-and-error for my tastes, although perhaps you can forgive this in 6x6. :roll: The mini sudoku was perhaps a bit subtle, but really don't need T&E to be solved :P : After putting obvious 3 in R2C6 and R4C2, one can see that R1C2 and R5C6 mus...

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

But I cannot help to find a bit strange the presence of a Skyscraper, a Calcudoku and a Futoshiki in a sudoku championship. I also find this odd, since it seemed that everybody else on the UK forum (apart from me) argued strongly that these were certainly not sudoku variants! So it seems at least s...

Fred, How does the relay aspect work? There aren't any marked cells in the grids you posted. Thank you, David McNeill. David, I change the previous tournament's page to result page.
