If my record keeping is accurate, last month we had 15 experts. That is a new record. Again, almost half the puzzles were experts.

Dalebo. With coloring, you use the red and green to mark a separate color for each element of a duo -- a duo being exactly two occurrences of the same digit in a constituency. Some duos are pairs (two digits in a cell), some two occurrences of one digit in a constituency but the cells may have more than two digits. Chains of these -- red, green, red, green -- come into conflict if two digits of the same color appear in one cell or if a digit appears twice in a constituency having the same color. Google "Coloring chain Sudoku.
