ive gotten more on this expert than yesterdays easy
yeah, me too - for sure an easier start
but experts always suck me in this way, and then it all goes sideways somewhere in the middle :)
that didn't come out right...
aww, well I'm sure it'll work out...and no worries I knew what you meant
"expert puzzles sucker me in to thinking I'm doing well, and then it all goes sideways and I get stuck"
Done, had to guess once
Let's see how bad this one is...
starts off easy enough... I guess the venom is in the tail :)
Burn on! The only things the last crew did better than us were suck and die.
9 minutes for an expert is quite amazing, sprite
23 filled, going green...
im sure theres something nice like an x-wing here, but im just going red-guess...
ah, rats! gonna have to try again with more sleep!
Hi h, same here. Filled in 23. Went green. Got the first guess wrong. Completed it with the second guess. My first 5 points.
same here. filled 23, filled in green, now looking for the key...
I wonder if there are any tips for an effective way to look for the key, other than a simple guess.
I just googled for the answer, and got to learn about x-wing, swordfish, xy-wing and conjugate chain ...
came together pretty easily with one lucky green. This was like a medium for this struggling sudokuer.
here goes nuttin
Would somebody tell me about the slang..... like "green" and others? Thanks
greens make it easier to solve the puzzle. If you hold down shift as you select a number it comes up as a small green number, you can use it to see what numbers are possible in each square. Same thing for red if you hold down red
Difficulty score 46. It took me several XY chains to solve it.
once more into the breach!
good one for a Saturday morning, then
blazed through it after some sleep!
greens were helpful
how come I couldn't get yesterday's, and this one was a snap!
hmm, I only used two xy-chains, one blatantly obvious xy-wing, and a handful of easier techniques.
not hard at all.
it doesn't start as difficult
piece a pie!!!!!
wooo hoooo 5 big fat points...... yeah baby!
i give up. for now.
30 cells left, going green.
*sigh* I just don't get XY-wings
Well, I'm really stuck, and greens did very little good.
I'll go read how to do the xy wing again.
Well, I had found two xy wings earlier, not knowing what they were called, but I can't find another. Now I need to go pick up my no good son.
1, 6, 9... where are you guys
Not yet. Filling up the greens now :)
got mine already filled in. lots of 1's, 5's, 6's and 9's
and two pairs in the upper left box aren't helping
done. guessed right on a 6-9 combination
but I hate guessing. Wish I knew there was another way.
done it was easy whats all the fuss about shoud have been a medium
onto my forth sudoku today put my rank up like 10 or 12 hehe i am on a role yeeeha!
For anyone out there like Krys10 who doesn't get XY-wings, don't bother. Learn the XY chain technique. The XY-wing is just a special case of the XY chain.
