Done, no greens, but 1 guess.
Done with greens
done. no greens
clickety-click done on the reds.
more like a hard
done, no greens, second guess
Done. No Greens.
done, with greens, finally
Done. I had to eviscerate my cat and read her entrails to solve this one.
[Note: no actual cats were harmed in the solving of this puzzle. Andy just has some trouble with filters and boundaries in his online chatting at times.]
back to puzzle... hello Onpaki
I've got 21 filled in and am stuck...
Difficulty score 42. No green, yet. But I have 16 filled and am thinking I won't get any more without green.
i have the same 21 filled in and a bunch of redundant entries
21 filled also Drwho you there?
same here, previous guesses turned out bummers
I did it, I did it. Third guess was the good one.
I got lucky & picked right the very first time.
have to go for now.. going back a bit later
gman, I'm back.
Done quickly with greens and one lucky guess.
Back again... is there any technique other than guessing to get past 21?
the key subgrid is the center right one - get it and the puzzle unlocks
ok.. commence again...
17 filled...not sure i'll get much further without greens (or even with them, for that matter!)!
stuck at 21 even with greens...
terminate.. no greens
oops.. i meant with greens... naughty naughty
dang sandbox! well done!
then i take it back...
just kidding - still well done!
After 21, I found a forcing chain and a naked triple to solve it.
Actually I could have done without the naked triple if I had crosshatched a column.
Responds well to the Feldheimer reverse
uhoh - diving into this one from the comments sounds like fun
a well placed 1 and 4 and this was a piece of cake. Of course I had to make a guess to place that 1 and 4.
I don't know the name of the technique but there's a rectangular formation with pairs where one corner's "either/or" forces the opposite corner to be a particular value. Is that a forcing chain?
Whatever it's called, now I'm stuck at 22. Progress!
done, no greens, bunch of work interruptions
done no green.
