SPOILER ALERT (maybe) i think it's a matter of coloring with 4's, 6's or 7's...more coffee first
gman, it's easier than that. Crosshatch + unique rectangle and it's all done.
spell...I was wrong,,,, but not about the coffee--should have seen it right in front of me
Done, no greens or guesses. Agree with spellacked. Very easy for an expert. UR really shouldn't be classified as an expert technique.
did some calculations---to solve all of the puzzles up to today means having solved 3,328 sudokus. Avg pts per solve is 2.085. At 15 minutes per game (assumed avg) a person would spend 34 2/3 DAYS, nonstop to do all the puzzles YIKES
i don't understand, expert? pretty easy.
i thought i had screwed up or it wouldn't be going so smoothly, but i hadn't.
That really was a ridiculously easy expert. If I can finish it with no greens, no guesses, it's an easy.
Nope, not an Expert. An Easy. Did it, no greens, no guess, no problemo. 18.
Must admit, thinking of retiring from here after March 10th 2016 puzzle.
!0 years is enough for any one ;-)
Does anyone else see a pattern among recent puzzles? So many EZPZ's, and several more rated much harder than they really are? I have only been on this board for a couple of months and so I don't know whether this kind of thing has happened before. If it's a new pattern, the obvious question is: Why is it happening? (and was it something I said?) Should I ask Dr. God to change my username to paranoid?
I can't believe I just lost this page!!! I was almost done too :(
